[RC5] Uptime and/or CPU time records?

At my old place we had lots of Novell servers which were up for very long
periods of time.  Moving them became a real nightmare as you *knew* when you
shut 'em down they weren't coming back up.  (Dead HDD's usually)

I heard about a lost novell server stayed up and running for 4 years. Only
nobody knew were the server was because it was lost during a renovation of
the building. It turned out that they put the server on the wrong side of a
new wall. But it did its job perfect during those 4 years :)
