Uptime...

I know, I know --- noise, but I couldn't help it this time...

  5:35pm  up 405 days,  1:15,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
User     tty      from             [email protected]  idle   JCPU   PCPU  what
root     tty1                      9Mar96                      w

That was a Linux/Intel dual-ether router -- it finally crashed about 5
weeks later after a major power-failure when the UPS battery ran out.

I agree with the previous comment of "if it ain't broke..." The above
machine was running 1.0x (I think it was .09) kernel even though 2.0 was
out, but it was performing fine as it was (btw, the login shown was the
console session logged in right after boot).
