  5:06pm  up 294 days,  3:05,  1 user,  load average: 1.08, 1.02, 1.01

That's, a mail server I run for my employer.  It runs
SuSE 6.3.  Now that I'm getting up to speed on LFS, I'd consider switching
if I had some way to keep my uptime. :-) (The high load average (always
somewhere near 1) is from running mprime, the GIMPS client.)

The NT servers at work don't fare nearly as well...30-50 days is typical for
them, and they're running much more powerful hardware.  (The NT servers are
a dual PII-266 and a PII-350, each with 256 megs RAM and decent-sized
7200rpm SCSI disks.  The Linux server is a P5-166 with 64 megs RAM and two
very old IDE disks with a little over 1 gig between them...basically,
whatever parts were laying about when I got it up and running.)
