On the other hand, the fact that various entities have gone out of their 
way to advertise that they're running old hardware/out-of-date software 
has been noted elsewhere. I'd strongly suggest, if you're reading NANOG, 
  that you update, before someone less pleasant and friendly than myself 
finds you. Please.

definition of news is "something that almost never happens." When
something is so common that it's no longer news -- car crashes,
domestic violence -- that's when you should worry about it.
