welcome to the power of unix-based OSes ;)

i had a sudden strange image that i thought i'd share.

SCENE: two guys, sitting in a dark cave of a computer lab. greasy hair, glasses, dorito bags and bottles of Mt. Dew all over the place. a sign in the background says "U Cal Berkeley OS Research Lab", with a smaller one beneath it that says "We put the 'B' in 'BSD'".

[FX: a DOORBELL rings. GEEK 1 looks up from his terminal, then at GEEK 2.]

GEEK 1: See who that is, willya?

GEEK 2: It's probably the soda delivery guy. The fridge is kinda low.

[GEEK 2 walks over to the door and opens it. Outside are standing hundreds of extras, including families, college students, hipster artists types, etc. GEEK 2 stares, blankly, at them for a second. CAMERA cuts back to GEEK 1, still immersed in his terminal.]

GEEK 1: Who is it?

GEEK 2 (off screen): Hundreds of thousands of Apple users.

GEEK 1: What do they want?

[CAMERA cuts back to GEEK 2, standing in the doorway, yelling over his shoulder at GEEK 1.]

GEEK 2: Um, an OS kernel with protected memory and real preemptive multitasking, hundreds of business applications, rock-solid internet server applications, and ridiculous uptime.

[CAMERA cuts back to GEEK 1. He is unfazed; without looking away from the screen, he extends his hand and makes the "come on in" motion.]

[FX: MacOS X logo. "Think different." logo fades in below after a second. After another second, in the same font, fades in "We've got your uptime RIGHT HERE, baby."]

maybe not the longest uptime

but probably the strangest one you'll see today:

Re: maybe not the longest uptime

Are you running a VAX or something?

The longest uptime I've ever had on a machine was like 9 months... it was a Linux box, of course.

Oh, here's one machine in my house that is functioning as mail server and firewall:

Linux dragosani 2.4.17 #7 Fri Dec 28 13:58:34 EST 2001 i586 GNU/Linux
You have mail.
