I just had a quick check of my own systems.  The uptime figures, just
the days portion, are: 29, 2, 5, 47, 19, 30.

What is it I have to worry about on the ones with the longest uptimes?
(Admittedly, the 47-day figure came from a machine that's not directly
reachable from the global Internet; ignore that one if you like.)
