	At least it's a different thread... ;-)

	I had a UNIX system in my house that ran (and was working hard
	the whole time) for over 2 years before pity was taken on it
	and a beefier replacement system installed.  The original system
	was a 386/33 serving as a rather busy secondary nameserver and was
	never touched/rebooted/powercycled for 2+ years.  As time went on the 
	load increased and it became apparent the system was overloaded (and 
	paging excessively) so a P5/90 with more memory was installed.  A
	couple months after that the disk died ;-)
