Using TuxTime.dk to track uptime

Saturday, August 31st, 2002

The folks at tuxtime.dk have put
together a website and tools to let powergeeks compete for the longest
uptimes. I’m almost in the top 50 thanks to old i-zimbra!

They also have these swell dynamically generated banners

  • src="http://tuxtime.dk/cgi-bin/uptime.pl?computerid=32612&image=006"
    alt="homebrew uptime"> homebrew (new Deb
    ian woody system, new home web/file/mail server)
  • lt="i-zimbra uptime">
    i-zimbra (old whitebox P200/64Mb Red Hat 7.1 system, former home web/file serve
    r)
  • lt="elephanttalk (laptop) uptime">
    elephanttalk (Compaq Armada M700 laptop (usually Red Hat 7.3, sometimes
    W2k)
