    I currently have, on my iMac, a 47:8:40 uptime, in Days:Hours:Minutes. That is also my record.

    To find your uptime, open the Terminal (Applications->Utilities) and type "uptime" but without the quotes.

    This will be interesting to see, as my iMac has also been folding constantly for those 47 days. BTW, it is running Jaguar, so most of the recent security updates and such have been unneeded.

    Do tell your uptime!

    uptime of my server

    Well, my server uptime at the moment isn't that impressive because of recent macos updates:

    up 2 days, 4:32

    The longest uptime I've achieved with this machine is a bit more than 2500 hours; over 100 days!

    Specs of the mac: PowerMac 9600 with 400 mhz G3, running macos X 10.3.6

    This machine can be reached using Haxial KDX at kdxtracker://joshuamac.homeip.net

    I think my record would be between 1 and 2 months. About the only reason I ever reboot is if a software update requires it, and I don't always install them right away.

    No firewire or USB, it does have SCSI and an Apple serial port (which I use with my Newton ;) ). And it does have two PCMCIA slots, though I haven't used them yet on my system (can be used for firewire, USB and/or an Airport card).

    I originally bought this system to run Rhapsody 5.6 (Mac OS X Server 1.2), but switched the day Jaguar came out. It originally came with a G3/266 (1 MB of L2) and when I switched to Jaguar it already had 512 MB of RAM which made it a nice system. Currently I have a G4/500 (1 MB of L2) in it which I installed the spring of 2003.

    But yes, first things first... more RAM should help a lot. I had one client try running Jaguar with 192 MB and it seemed to slow up with more than a single major app open, but ran much better after upgrading to 512 MB of RAM. The more RAM the better.

    Other changes I've made: Upgraded from a 4 GB drive to an 8 GB (max without partitioning) and then put the 4 GB drive in the expansion bay (battery side) for a total of 12 GB, also replaced the CD-ROM drive with a CDRW drive.

    All and all, it is a great little system. :D

    Powerbook: 1 Day 19:28
    Beige G3: 2 Days 20 hours (just installed a Gigabit Ethernet card on Thursday)
    G3 iMac (Lime) : 4 days 20:23 (OS update)

    I think the longest is 54 days, held by the iMac. Granted, it spent most of that time sitting at the login screen.

    Load averages are how much of you processor is being used in the last 1, 5, and 15 minutes.

    My uptime is 7 hours by the way :( , I just finished setting up a new user account, and installing some updates. Longest is around 35 days, I needed to do a software update anyways.

    I installed some software that required a reboot last evening. Then I have Optimizer X set to automatically run while I'm at Church. That also calls for a restart.

    Currently 1 day, 18:20, because I moved my computer on Saturday. My record is a couple of months, back when I had an iBook.

    Because we already know the answer. ;)

    I typically shut my computer off so my longest uptime is probably a month at most.

    Currently I'm at nearly 6 days. It would be longer but 10.3.6 came out.

    There are lots of these threads started all the time. Maybe something that woul dbe intresting is to split the uptimes into catagories. Such as laptop, desktop, imac and server. Obviously a server is going to have a higher uptime than a laptop. Let's atleast compare apples to apples.
