Countdown to Update
Authored by: Anonymous on Jun 30, '01 03:21:49AM
I can count the days between updates using the uptime command because that is the only time my machines come down. Public Beta was up the longest with 100+ days, I think 10.0.3 was up 33 days. I'd say OS X is stable. The line voltage dropped a couple of weeks ago in a sudden thunder storm and one machine (iMac DVD) came down, but that's a freak accident--beyond that, all four of my machines run the way they should. The iMac is doing server service now as punishment. Take a look at the bottom of this page: http://english.yasuda-u.ac.jp/lc/

uptime:

1:30PM up 5 days, 20:52, 1 user, load averages: 0.35, 0.60, 0.77

Yes, the common denominator is support for hardware. I have a QUE Drive and reboot into Classic to burn CDs.

Really wish I wasn't so dependant on this. Since Apple got the CDR religion I wish my drive was supported. I would be interested to see what kind of uptime I could squeeze out of this iMac.

Not complaining. MacOSX is a dream come true. Beats the crap out of Linux (IMHO). Why, the hardware/software layer. Nuff said. Linux can't beat that. Still like Linux. Apple made the right move.


Way off topic: Nuke looks like a kick ass forum. Looks like I'm making the switch from geeklog before I get to tied to it.

Can't wait for Server to drop in the mailbox.

Yes, Nuke is a good program; it's going through some development pains at the moment, but the potential is there and I know it will get better...um, sounds like a certain OS we all love! The language files for Nuke are pretty bad (most of the developers are non-native English speakers), but, again, it's not a great problem and should improve. Do check it out at http://phpnuke.org
