There *are* people on the -current mailing list with more than one machine.
I know of one person running -current and 0.9!
I only have one machine, though, and can't top the uptime because I play
DOOM too often :-). I've had weeks-long stretches of continuous duty,
though. Unfortunately, after finally getting really current recently,
I've been experiencing mysterious hangs: probably panics, but because
I had DDB compiled in and was running X windows at the time, I haven't
got a clue what happened, since hitting the Big Red Switch[TM] wiped out
any chance of a dump. (I've taken DDB out now, hoping that will cause
it to dump when it craps out, so of course it has been absolutely solid
since then... :-).
