    Bah! The games we play

    I like to restart my servers, now and then.
    Just a way of saying thanks.
    (and also knowing it will restart in a controlled environment!)

    Ie, I'd rather know it'll restart when I reset it, than if it powers down for any other reason.

    That's pretty good uptime.

    I've had a windows server 2003 box up for over a year before, but needed a re-boot after some of the dreded windows updates!

    Currently re-start my entire server infrastucture every holiday just to give it the best chance of a problem free term

    Nice!
    Last time I really worried about uptime was in the heady days of Windows 2000 and severely overclocked Celerons. Only reason for the uptime was a BT 0800 Free Weekend (dialup!) that never cut me off on the Sunday night like it should have. 4 solid weeks of free ISDN access and a reboot afterwards only because I couldnt wait any longer for the upgrade I'd bought a fortnight before

    Gotta love Freenas though, one of my favourite ever little things

    Valid point, but it's only an FTP / Temp dump box for non important data.
    I'm surprised the PSU on the MB is still going - the old RM box it's in must be almost 10 years old.....

    "They're boxy, but they're good."

    Oh hang on, that's Volvo.

    Back in them days RM kit seemed to be really carefully selective in the components they used.

    344 days on a freenas box here, and I think thats only because I had to move it else it would be higher.
    Shows how well the thing works tbh

    I presume it's purely for "research" or testing the web filter. Good work on the uptime though - isn't it about time for a FreeNAS firmware upgrade?

    Indeed, as you can see the web filter was clearly 'broken' that day......keeps going down - gives me such a headache.....

    my home server was on for 150 days and then a dreaded powercut that lasted longer than the 40 mins the UPS can handle and it died and it died horribly cause it had to do a full scan of all 2.5TB and then it found a problem, so i had to crwal into the loftspace and pull it out to sort it out.
