    jane@Mordor.local:~ $ uptime
    15:40 up 3 days, 1:32, 6 users, load averages: 2.29 2.05 1.75

    17" pb, 1ghz, 1gb ram, et cetera, 10.3.4. Tiger is too blech.

    has some problems though, i think a restart might fix it.

    i used to have crazy uptimes with jag, now with panther theyre two weeks at most :(

    edit: i just noticed the two load average questions. the load averages are displayed in a one minute/five minute/fifteen minute format, the numbers are usually in a x.xx format, and the numbers themselves are an average of the number of processes that are ready to run or are running.
    ie if you have two processes performing computations for the past minute, the one minute load average will be two.
    There's no real minimum or optimal load average, it depends on you and the specs of the computer. the load averages are highly inaccurate and skewed (depending on the definition of what you call a process), so just ignore them ;) its just something the kernel needs for setting priorities and stuff.

    and also, the multiple users...you logged in right now accounts for one user. for each terminal window you open or user login, theres another user, et cetera.
    assuming from my uptime, i should have five terminal windows open...and i do :)

    Mine was 52 days as I posted above but today I had my first kernel panic ever (in 1 month shy of 1 year) as I was in Photoshop working on a huge file. The only thing that stops me is the required restarts for system/software updates. Oh well, looks like I'm going to have to just beat my record again ;)

    PS - I modified a Konfabulator widget for my own use and it posts my uptime (or best recorded uptime) as my away status in iChat.

    Looks like you'll have me in a couple days. What I've done is instead of restarting just logging out from time to time. It seems to help some.

    If it weren't that I came from Windoze; I would be up to about 45+ days. But any time I think that there is a slow down I reboot.....

    156 days, 18:47 on my Linux desktop. Does that count? :D

    Dual P3 Xeon 700, 440GX chipset, reg-ecc RAM. I don't think its crashed since nVidia sorted their drivers out a couple years ago.
