At least it covers the basics pretty well if you click through to info on
the various tools at the bottom of the page.

Other cases I've faced are:

5. Acoustic hum from florescent lights.
6. Noise from photocopier drum warming getting into

I think Fons is onto something, find the cases for noise
reduction, study the noise content, and devise or apply a
suitable noise algorithm.
