I am a hopeless nerd.

120-day uptime ... it's a new record for this box.

*sniff* I'm so proud ...

...and here I am debating whether or not I want to take it down to upgrade the kernel. I've been putting off a lot of these upgrades (both kernel and programs) for a long time, because I don't want to upset the machine's stability, but it's way past time for some of these.

(Besides which, I already lost the damn (but not critical) Jabber server to an SSL problem... running a Jabber server is almost more pain than it's worth...)

If you're going to try to fake it, at least do a good job ...

Re: OR

reguardless, i revert to my original statement. "If it ain't broke" .. you can't tell me you've never upgraded to a brok3d package or upgraded and had a conflict... something on those lines.

Re: OR

The reason I'm upgrading in the first place is because there are security issues. I'd say that qualifies as broken.

Bah. If you need to upgrade, do it. Uptime bragging is just a bunch of dick waving. The only person who should care about your uptime is you.

Mine is longer than yours! ;) *waves his uptime around*

Seriously, it is ... which is why it's always amusing (I like to mock script kiddies). Besides which, what's the point of having a box with a 2-billion day uptime if it gets 0wn3d?
