Update 6/16/04 10:39PM PST - All has gone well, we're back up.

A sad day is coming soon. After 229 days of 24/7 uptime (its second boot nonetheless), (who runs the network and is on) is doing some maintenence on their power grid, so all machines are getting shutdown.


[...@www] uptime
18:25:55 up 227 days, 7:20, 1 user, load average: 0.15, 0.14, 0.07

I love linux -- show me one Windows machine that has been running 229 days straight (and I work at Microsoft).

On June 16 23:00 PST, the power will be off for approx 5 hours. Hopefully, we'll be up and running immediately after (or sooner).

A preventative "lets see if we can reboot OK" will be scheduled for June 16 1:00 AM PST.

You work at Microsoft? Oh, man... sure, Visual Studio is a nice program, and Office is also a nice program, but, well, no comment on the rest of Microsoft's products. What do you get to do for MS?

I'm an intern in the Windows Client Performance team (Perf). We make the kernel go faster. Our sister-team is the Reliability team, ironically.

It's funny how easy it is to bash Microsoft from the outside (I did). But since I've been here, it's a great company and they're really trying to get going in the right direction as far as security, reliability and performance are concerned.

I really wouldn't like to work on the Reliability team

Pfft, MS Office? Three words, Open Office, and free
I'd use it if I didn't get MS Office from my college for free.

Good luck in the belly of the beast Nic
