Incontrovertible Proof Of Geekiness

As of 10:52 PM, my PC has now been up continuously for 40 straight days, running Windows XP.

The downside is, I still haven’t installed my new dual-layer DVD burner because I don’t want to break the streak…

    Ha! One day, you’ll have to. Depends on how much you want to install the DVD burner.

    Well, it’s not really an urgent need, since I already have a DVD burner, and I don’t have any dual-layer DVDs to burn yet.

    Oh, in that case, you can probably tough it out another 40 days.

    Wasn’t there a bug in Windows that would make it crash if it ran for a certain number of hours without restarting?

    That sounds familiar, but I don’t think it was XP…

    40 days : WinXP ::
    40 hours : Win98 ::
    40 minutes : Win95 ::
    40 months : Linux

    Heh heh heh… 40 days without a power outage is actually pretty unusual in itself.
