Uptime down the drain

The wonko.com database server crashed today, luckily without losing any data.

It’s a Windows 2000 box running MySQL. Before it crashed, it had been running continuously without a hitch for 415 days. I still don’t know what killed it, because Windows didn’t bother logging whatever it was. Sigh.

Meanwhile, wonko.com’s FreeBSD web server has regained the lead with 225 days. We’ll see how long it lasts.
