At what point do you need to reboot due to the jiffie counter wrap
on i386? I seem to remember 433 days mentioned. It's quite impressive
to say to the customer, "Well sir, we will need to reboot this
machine once a year. I'll just put that command in cron." Or he
could get an Alpha if he needs it up longer. Would I be correct
in mentioning Sparc too?

Once I had netscape inform me that it was about to expire. No
problem. I just left it running for the next three months until
I had the time to deal with it. This is all probably off topic.
