Smileys's proxy (BSDI) has been up over 50 days, last down was a power
outage. Previous down was someone typing Ctrl-Alt-Del on what they
thought was a different keyboard... The dialins (Linux) have only been
up a couple of weeks; I didn't _need_ to reboot them last time, but I
have them running on serial consoles now and wanted to be sure they'd
boot OK if the power failed. The Win95 machines go down every night, and
most of them have locked up at least twice by that time.
