It's not very long, but it's not bad for a laptop used every day. The last time it went down was when I forgot to plug the power cable back in. :)

Uh huh.

The last power outage here was 63 days ago, so everything has an uptime of that long.

These are silly, but... Unlike duck, this was on a UPS along with the WiFi AP, and all it did was control the lights via X10. Soekris net4501, 486-class Geode CPU @ 133MHz.

No UPS.

I want your power company! That's really impressive.

I'm hard pressed to get uptimes like that with a UPS. I've got 20 minutes of battery power but around here the power tends to go out for less than a minute or for several hours. There's no middle ground. The brief power flickers happen too often for my tastes. The major outages happen every year or two, it seems. The last one (over 4 hours) was just 34 days ago. Although at that time, people in nearby cities were in the dark for the better part of a week thanks to an ice storm. So I got off lucky.

I did once have a trio of Dell PowerEdge 1750 servers running Linux all make it (just) past 800 days of uptime before the power went out for several hours. That was my best uptime but can't compare to anything I've seen a long while. And almost always due to power outages.

Yep, I'm really amazed at their performance these last few years. Mild winters helped no doubt. Admittedly the server rack now has a PDU which smooths things over a bit, the alpha used to be really sensitive to microfluctuations but as you see it's doing great now.

I've been meaning to get a UPS but the closet half-rack is full and well.. why? :-)

Back in the day, my iBook G3 had an uptime of over a year.
I wish I had taken a screenshot of that...
