very good result, but thinking that way is quite a nonsense. you have to 
shut down, then just shut down!

if you want to talk about how well your server works, how stable it is and 
how good admin are you, then not this uptime shows, but mean time between 
UNPLANNED downtimes!

just write down that it was 553,5 days up and working without problems 
and add this value to next uptime :)
