here here. I definitely raise my glass to DEC engineering. my /240
continues to chug along with NetBSD 1.4.3A (and soon 1.6). the only
things that affect its uptime are power outages exceeding my UPS'
holding ability, and the (once a year or so) difficult-to-track NFS bug.
the latter doesn't actually kill the machine: just the NFS traffic.
even the 3100s and 2100s are tough critters.
