(That's approximately 49 days for those too lazy to whip out a 
calculator. Which is pretty sad ;-).)

I'd actually be quite shocked if I don't have some Windows boxes around 
that have exceeded that (at least since NT5). I think I've kept my home 
computer up longer (back when it ran W2K), and likely some lab machines 
around work (which, granted, never have software or updates installed, 
so no reason to reboot).

Of course, my Linux gateway at home says:
$ uptime
  11:06:30 up 99 days, 13:35,  2 users,  load average: 0.08, 0.02, 0.05
