I was browsing around Netcraft this morning checking on Hotmail among other things (yes, Hotmail is still running about 50% FreeBSD and Apache) and decided to explore the Exodus Communications netblock. Lots of interesting names show up in the high ranks of uptime but not a single NT server in the top 50 (all over 300 days). Isn't Netcraft great?

Unfortunately, from the uptime.netcraft.com FAQ: Additionally, NT4 uptimes cycle back to zero after 49.7 days, and give timestamps exactly as if the machine had been rebooted at this precise point, while HP-UX, Linux, Solaris and recent releases of FreeBSD also cycle back to zero after 497 days. NT4 SP5 sometimes gives unreliable data, appearing as a "swarm of bees" effect on a graph.
