I have been running a nt+IIS+sql+someothergizmos box for well over 8
months now. The only time it has gone down was when some nimrod tangled
his feet around the cables from teh soundcrad and another time when i
crashed it using some crappy mp3 encoder. Thats Twice in over 8 months,
none of em os realted and none of em traffic related(Im currently hosting
several medium to smallish db/web projects for the whole of the BLM and
large chunks of the DOI).

Im realy at a loss for why folks cant keep something as easy as an NT box
up. Maybe its the water up here, but my box stays up better than John
Holms on a Viagra diet.
