OK, so you've proven that dedicated servers can run for an average time of
almost a month... What about machines at which users actually sit and
(attempt to) do actual work? I mean, pushing mail and web pages over the
wire is one thing, but successfully dealing with a user clicking on a
pop-up menu, or changing their sound card driver, or (god forbid!) running
an NFS client or an X-Windows server, is something else entirely...
