Today I’ve decided to finally shut down a trusty server. It’s been the office firewall for 4+ years, happily chugging away on an old HP desktop, running Gentoo linux.
$ uptime 08:44:48 up 267 days, 17:51, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
It’s currently been running for nearly a year. It’d be double that if we’d not had an issue with a snake, and the office transformed. Before that, it’d been running without issues for nearly 2 years, where the failure before that was caused by a PSU fan failure.
It was recently phased out with some network reconfigurations, and is no longer needed…
Good night lestats.
