> It must be time for that .0001! <G> Has anybody thought to do the math? 99.9999% uptime means a total of THIRTY SECONDS of unscheduled downtime per year (actually, 31 and change). Even if it's only 99.999%, that's 5 minutes. Even in the more forgiving case, that's only one or two unscheduled reboots a year. If Microsoft wants to try and peddle that, that's their business, but you'd have to have never used a single Microsoft product to believe it. OTOH, this would be a great ad campaign for IBM. "Microsoft announces 99.9999% accuracy the day before their servers are down for 12 hours. We all know that 99.9999% uptime is impossible, so why do they do try to claim it? We all know there's no computer out there that's 99.9999%, or 99.999%, or even 99.99% reliable. So what are they competing with? Magic? IBM iSeries: 99.98% uptime. Not quite magic." +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
