  1. Inspired by "Two years ago today..."

    I don't recommend to try this at home, but thinking about sharing a
    curiousity...

    localhost:~$ uname -a && uptime
    FreeBSD localhost 4.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.1-RELEASE #0: Wed Dec 13 16:19:46

    Impressive, this must be a record. I've seen a higher uptime once, but that
    was a rather old cluster.

    What does the box do?

    Indeed:

    g1-60(6.4-P)[1] sh
    $ date -r $((`date "+%s"` - 2642 \* 24 \* 60 \* 60 ))
    Fri Jul 13 09:14:10 PDT 2001
    $

    Why must it be fake? jkh announced 4.1-RELEASE on Thu Jul 27 05:17:13
    PDT 2000, the above kernel was built in December 2000, and uptime
    indicates it was last booted in July 2001. All quite reasonable.

    And while that uptime is a remarkable (but expected) achievement for
    FreeBSD, its a pretty darn good feather in someone's UPS cap.

    I'd like to hear the explanation behind the claims of 'fake'.

    Now its time to have some fun. Hook that baby up to the net, open a port
    or two, and let us poke n prod at it - we'll see how long it lives. :-P
    There's nothing more honorable than showing off a senior bsd machine
    (when it comes to uptime).
