Heh. check out -this- one:

 % uname -a
 ****** ******************** *** **** ****** *** Kernel #0: Thu Mar 20 16:40:01 CST 1997     ************************:/usr/src/sys/compile/LOCAL  i386

The build date _is_ accurate, the hardware it's running on is old enough to 
vote.   <wry grin>

It's publicly accessible on the Internet, 

It's not quite as ridiculous as it looks, the (limited) apps running on it 
_are_ up-to-date.

Uptime is nothing to brag about -- no UPS, combined with 'unreliable' public
utility power, does have an impact.
