I've been holding out until this baby hits a year running, but you've
got me beat.  Still, I find this impressive:

charon:~: uptime
 1:57AM  up 316 days, 19 mins, 1 user, load averages: 0.24, 0.18, 0.17
charon:~: uname -a
NetBSD 1.2_BETA NetBSD 1.2_BETA (CHARON) #0: Fri Aug  2 00:48:10 EDT 1996 sparc

This is a 4/300 that basically gets hammered on constantly, as my
primary source server (X, gnu stuff, NetBSD supped daily, etc.), Mac
file server (via NFS), primary kerberos server, secondary DNS and
hesiod server, stratum 3 time server, and so on.  It also has two
ethernet interfaces, although one of them isn't being used at the
moment.  It's nice to see such rock-solid performance, and this from a
BETA operating system!  :-)

Now, let's see if we can get that SS5/170 up and running!
