Another uptime story

...unfortunately, due to re-racking and upgrade requirements, I have to
pull the plug. There is nothing hidden or obfuscated in my output, and I
am not ashamed of that.

Just a little bit of sadness of having to 'down' it, given this uptime
in my relatively hostile environment. *sigh*

I know this usually generates flames, but in the past, I've seen these
types of messages do more good than harm.

Someone have a beer for me as I watch my personal uptime record go bye-bye:
