    Let's see who keeps their Mac on the longest without a restart.

    If you're using OSX (or Linux for that matter) open the terminal, type in 'uptime' and post it.[​IMG]

    Here's mine:

    From my server, which I never reboot. (My PowerBook only has an uptime of about 14 days right now.)

    -All

    $%@# you would start a thread on this subject now!

    I just shut down my 12PB to install RAM 1 day and 6 hours ago!

    @$#%

    That RAM install was the first "Shut Down" I've done since I acquired the machine in February. The only time I "Restart" is for Software Updates.

    hmm..how about rc5 for xlr8yourmac. We're coming ~8th overall right now. Anyhow, here's my crappy uptime after a recent restart. rc5 is running in the background on verbose.

    If you guys don't want to go the terminal route, try this app:

    Uptime In Menu Bar

    I think you probably get an idea of what it does from the title! It uses the same Uptime command that you enter into the terminal, except it puts the info into your menu bar.

    Here's mine:

    I had to shut down last night so that I could take the airport card out of the ol' iMac and transplant it into my sister's iBook.

    I can get about 7 days max, after that the system slows down and sometimes the finder brings the whole system down.

    i can't post a pic, since i just sold my TiBook 667. (waiting for the new 15"!!:D )

    but i think my highest uptime while i had it was around 20 days. things really started to slow down around 10 days of uptime, and it becomes painful trying to use Photoshop.

    also, how does everyone get the Terminal window to be transparent? i thought that TinkerTool could do that, but the new TinkerTool couldn't do it under 10.2 as far as i could remember. so how is everyone doing it? is there a new version of TinkerTool or something?

    My Mac uptime: 12 days 18 hrs 33 min

    The company I work for had a customer who had a Solaris-based Unix system. We told them to reboot after we made a change to a kernel parameter. They asked how to reboot. It turns out they had never done so before. We sold them the computer over a year before, and it had been up continuously ever since!
