This page is a memorial to my trusty GNU/Linux firewall box, in honor
of its first year of continuous uptime.
- klein (for mathematician Felix Klein 1849-1925)
- Digital Equipment Corporation
- 166 MHz Alpha LCA4 (64-bit)
- 64MB (error-correcting parity RAM)
- 1.2GB internal IDE hard disk
- 1991 DEC VT420 serial terminal
- Debian GNU/Linux
- packet-forwarding Internet gateway and firewall
Only nine days after reaching the one-year mark for continuous uptime,
a severe thunderstorm caused klein to reboot. The final syslog marker
to reach stable storage before the reboot was marked 26 August
16:16:34. Klein's confirmed span of continuous uptime was therefore
374 days 2 hours and 23 minutes in length -- not the longest I've
heard for similar hardware, but certainly a record in my household.
Klein came back up shortly thereafter -- the beginning of a new
Tim Fraser's homepage at the WPI alumni site.
