My uptimes are generally nowhere near that - but that's *my* doing, not
the machine's. Example: just dropped a new video card in my machine at
home. Uptime? Dunno - two days? Expected uptime? Prolly two weeks.
Expected uptime *without* me twiddling hardware? Depends - when's the
next power outage going to be? :)
MS, because work should be measured by effort, rather than result.
