"This is not such a newsworthy topic, but my question is, who has the longest uptime with OpenBSD? My 2.8 box has 425 days of uptime, but I'm sure that's not the longest out there. Are there any original 2.1 boxes which have never rebooted? When I get a chance I'm going to upgrade to 3.1 and then the uptime starts back at zero again. "I think a more important question is how do you reliably and securely maintain a machine and aim for high availability (long uptimes)? How do you do this without ignoring application and library upgrades? This gets to be a bit trickier than just leaving it on and exposed with security holes. How have the readers here accomplished this?
