Didn't you know? It's necessary to hang power cables up occasionly to let the build up of stray electrons to drain out.

Just like I have to empty the bit bucket in the computer room once a month. :)

    Servers with an uptime of more than a day are: Configured properly, monitored relatively closely, non-Winblows, and not a target of any kind of attack(lucky).

      Oh, I dunno, I monitor my servers (Linux) but not really closely and they don't go down (okay, one crashed two weeks ago - a program had a memory leak and because I hadn't logged onto it for two weeks (I was off work studying for exams) I didn't notice the problem, since been fixed).

      Our NT boxen don't crash either - then again they're monitored closely by one of my coworkers who is a very competent NT admin.

      But yes, they're all configured properly as well, well that Linux box which crashed is now more properly configured than it was. :) (I expected Redhat to come with a sensible ulimit already in place, it appears that 6.0 doesn't.)

      Updated (08:53 UTC): Hmmm, I expect to cop a bit of flak about this one...

    Thank God I am not the only the only one who has to empty the bit bucket each month, but I am always having to sweep up the heap.
