Default 1100 days...gone

Today the mother of all power surges tripped an APC Enterprise UPS cabinet (x2), and my favorite little Debian Woody machine, with uptime of 1100+ days, rebooted. The APC was inspected literally just two weeks ago and was given the stamp of approval. Looks like the nearest upstream transformer crapped itself.

/me sighs

No real reason for posting this, other than it's depressing and I thought I'd vent a bit. Note that none of my BSD machines achieve uptimes like that...I upgrade them too often since they run more critical services.

Long uptimes are a sign of poor maintenance.

Just saying.

Yup. This is true. I addressed that issue in my original post.

Thanks =)

Hm, a couple of weeks ago we also had an APC blow out and take down several servers (including a few PSUs)...
