Code:
jtshaw@smithers:~$ uptime
 15:32:44  up 142 days,  1:30,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.04
jtshaw@smithers:~$
and

Code:
jtshaw@homer jtshaw $ uptime
 15:34:07 up 5 days, 19:21,  1 user,  load average: 0.40, 0.36, 0.36
jtshaw@homer jtshaw $
and, last but not least

Code:
jtshaw@marge jtshaw $ uptime
 15:36:09 up 26 days, 19:21,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.03, 0.05
jtshaw@marge jtshaw $
Marge had been up for over 400 days but she needed a new kernel since she is an external machine on a network. Smithers will have to get a kernel upgrade too soon. Homer is my desktop and I keep him up to date so he gets rebooted a lot more frequently.

And yes, I really like the Simpsons.

Slacktop, my laptop:

Code:
 21:55:16 up 2 days, 23:10,  3 users,  load average: 0.95, 0.57, 0.31
I had to turn it off to take it to a lecture for a presentation I was going to give, and it's my main workstation, so gets rebooted about once every fortnight.

One of my servers:

Code:
22:05:14  up 63 days, 1 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.10, 0.07, 0.02
Which is how long it's been since I installed the op sys on it.

My other server had a new hard drive put in about a month ago, and it's been chugging along merrily since then

I don't get the whole bragging-about-your-uptime thing. Does it make some people feel more manly? I think it's more important what you did during that h'/p3r-l33t uptime. Anyway, I'm not afraid to admit I turn my laptop off before I go to bed.

It's an ok thing I guess, but Unix based systems have long uptimes by inherent design. Unix systems were designed for 24/7 usage and intended to be running as such. Of course, this is why automatic crons can be set to anytime the system isn't too busy...

[root@localhost root]# uptime
00:11:25 up 8 days, 38 min, 1 user, load average: 1.07, 0.47, 0.21
[root@localhost root]#

Running Mandrake 9.2 on a desktop computer... sadly, I will have to shut it down tomorrow so that I can repair a customers HD... is there anyway to install a HD without shutting the comp down? Maybe an interface that hooks up to the USB and then to the IDE HD???
