Ever wondered why #performance is not scaling linear, but more like in steps? This episode of #TheTwoMinutesThuesday explains why!

Watching your computer copying large files you will notice that the overall progress is everything but smooth nor linear! Some data blocks seem to be transferred faster than others. The reason for this encountered phenomenon lies in #ComputerEngineering: Data is transported in blocks, blocks need to be found on disk, fill up caches, and take time to be flushed!
