Set and forget: 335 days and counting …

Late in summer 2007, I set up a dedicated Linux Ubuntu server at a site in San Diego to host OurAirports and my consulting site, megginson.com. The ISP has had some net outages, but the Ubuntu server itself has kept on chugging through. Here’s the uptime:

 11:18:31 up 335 days,  7:12,  1 user,  load average: 0.05, 0.06, 0.01

Since the ISP set the computer up with a minimal Ubuntu install and gave me the access info, it has run continuously — I know I should install an updated kernel some day, but it’s hard to bring myself to do that.

    Thanks, Zbigniew — I do keep up with the security updates, but haven’t had to reboot to install any of them.
