I haven’t rebooted my computer in a long while.

It all happened when I started preparing for ETech, and became irrationally concerned that my elderly Powerbook might never turn on again. So I kept it up constantly, for a few months.

Then I had loads of stuff after that “up”, floating around, and it was taking ages to process. So I didn’t reboot.

Then it was Reboot, and again, I didn’t reboot in case it wouldn’t come back and I lost my work.

I think the paranoia had set in.

Anyhow, GeekTool sits on the bottom of my screen, telling me all about my uptime. I looked just now, and it said

13:24 up 212 days, 3:32, 5 users, load averages: 1.50 1.61 1.35

5 users? Not sure what that’s all about. Anyhow… 212 days is a long while. I think we need a spring clean. Time to restart.
