1000 Days of Uptime!

One of my main servers running a Debian distribution of Linux is having it's 1000th day of uptime today:

Thanks to for the nice stable data center. Wisconsin - no earthquakes, no hurricanes.

Another cool thing - one of the servers running on here, written in Java has been up and running since 2008 - not a lot of people can say they've written software that has run over 500 days without having to be restarted. The server has handled over ten million requests since being started (yes I know lots of sites handle that in a day) The java server is based on the core of FIT Issue Tracking Software - It's running on Java 1.5.0_06 VM.

Here's looking forward to another 1000 days, or jinxing it and having the server crash tomorrow…
