I can top that - today we shut down our local Mud machine (usually
heavily loaded) running Linux 1.2.13 after an uptime of 366 days and
12 hours because we had to move the furniture around for installing
new network cables. Last reboot was because someone crashed the machine
mechanically after an uptime of about 180 days ...

I've got two other machines (proxy, web and dialup servers) over 100 days
