What kind of uptimes are you guys pulling? My Win XP x64 box just broke 55 days.

At one time Wonko's uptime client could post to sites which tracked uptimes include the uptime-project. It's closed. Any other sites out there?

The uptime of my Linux rigs is only limited to the availability of kernel updates. :)

Those are mostly servers - the XP-boxes are workstations and get a kick at least every week due to some (not boinc or OS related) app hangs...

[edit] My record for win is 115 days - a w2k server with 5 users. Completely forgot the poor little thing and didn't do any updates, so a didn't have to restart... :) [/edit]

Note on Linux- My 4 Linux machines are rebooted only on kernel updates. That is one of the things I like about Linux- in 99% of the cases updates require no action other than the update itself (the remaining 1% that are not kernel updates require a single command like "service network restart" rather than Window's imfamous "please reboot now to complete update").

uptimes = how long since last pc reboot

thanks, your time is a bit more descriptive than 'last kernel update', lol

there's been a number of kernel updates this past year I believe, just looking for a site which lists them

Well, for ubuntu LTS it's over 3 months, for the 7.04 it's 1 to 1.5 months.
My CentOS is server is running 4 months now, cause I skipped one kernel-upd.

For you linux guys a good way is to paste the console command: uptime.

arcturus[~]$ uptime
12:19:52 up 23 days, 21:25, 1 user, load average: 1.00, 1.00, 1.00

Projects like Cosmology can be a hard test for a computer's hardware and to a lesser degree software. Unstable systems usually don't have long uptimes while stable ones might. There's other reasons for short uptimes (energy savings, habits) but many do run 24/7 and the results might prove interesting, cross OS and hardware platform. Uptimes is an often discussed topic on various forums.

While not the primary focus it might elicit a few help requests from people having pc instability. As a 'general' topic there's an indirect association.

Windows users can find their uptime by typing 'systeminfo' (without the quotes) from a command prompt.

"Systeminfo" did not work on my XP home system. But by running command "net statistics server" it told me the date of the last startup.

I'm currently at 20 days. Which was the last time M$ release a major update.

My last uptime on XP x64 was 11 days before I had to restart for a graphics driver update. This machine plays games constantly throughout the day, so it's quite surprising it can stay up that long without crashing.

Here's the top uptimes I've got on several OSs:

Windows Vista x64 = 14 days (wasn't lagging either, Vista is very good at handling memory)
Windows XP x64 = 17 days
Windows 2000 Standard Server = 26 days (and counting)
Linux x64 = 15 days

Windows (XP Pro X64, XP Pro, Win2K): usually 30 days (Windows Update requires reboot).
Linux: one machine has been running for 191 days now, one 165, 2 others shorter periods due to HW changes, etc (added GB ethernet card to one, updated graphics driver on one).
