admins: My Linux boxen have years of uptime! Linux is awesome! Take that Winblows!
me: Shit, that VPS in Australia has been up for over 3 years. I should reboot it to activate any kernel updates and verify actually boots up correctly.
@HerraBRE Ooof, yeah. The servers I used to work with were up for years at a time, and surprise surprise, often failed to boot up when they actually did get rebooted.
@hummingrain Getting burned is how we learn! 😁
@HerraBRE you need to grease
@HerraBRE My best uptime on real iron was about 1,150 days or better and it was only ruined with a scheduled downtime to replace some power on my rack, which lasted only minutes and booked by me months in advance, but...
Nearly made me cry.
