    2.7.13 eh? Wow, that's optimistic. I guess Karim and others better get
    busy. Unless Linus throws in about 50 kernels with the -preX naming
    scheme like this last time. ;)

    Here's nice long uptime:

    tstad% uptime
    12:58pm up 503 days, 1:30, 3 users, load average: 0.23, 0.04, 0.00
    tstad% uname -a
    ULTRIX tstad 4.3 1 RISC

    I guess Ultrix didn't have a jiffie wraparound problem at 497 days.
    That DEC 5000/200 has run almost continuously for 12 years, except for
    the occasional palace revolution/forest fire fiasco.
