to save money at the colo, desa's brother machine (ka-boom.bignoise.us) is getting decommissioned... I believe ka-boom has the longest uptime of any box I've ever personally worked on, rolling over its jiffies counter 95 days ago, putting him at 592+ days.
root@ka-boom:~# ps auxf | head -2
USER       PID %CPU %MEM   VSZ  RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
root         1  0.0  0.0  1272  484 ?        S    Aug30  10:03 init [2]
that's august of 2004. and now:
root@ka-boom:~# uptime; halt
 08:17:36 up 95 days,  8:37,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.15, 0.28

Broadcast message from root (pts/0) (Sat Dec  3 08:17:36 2005):

The system is going down for system halt NOW!
root@ka-boom:~# Connection to ka-boom.bignoise.us closed by remote host.
Connection to ka-boom.bignoise.us closed.
[Process exited - exit code 255]
I think that's pretty cool. and this is the part where ka-boom gets one-upped repeatedly in comments, but that's ok, too.
