The best uptime?

I found a box today in a squirreled away hosting provider that I’ve been paying the bill for mindlessly. I’ve found I can probably move the thing to s3 since the pages are essentially static. Amazingly enough, this may be one of highest uptime servers ever (maybe the most rooted server ever too but I don’t see any evidence yet). This host has amazing uptime. I think my company has experienced about 4 datacenter outages in the time this server has been up.

Pretty amazing stuff. Unfortunately it’s time to consolidate and put this guy to bed. Of course IP addresses and server names have been deliberately hidden to protect the innocent.
