When I got my Macbook Air and Time Capsule I gave my father my Macbook Pro and Airport Extreme.
He’d never used a Mac before so I showed him the basics, email, surf, download, music, video, DVD player, iPhoto, etc and left him to it.
My Macbook Air has now got a fault and needs sending to Apple for 2 weeks for repair so I’ve relieved my father of the Macbook Pro for the 2 weeks I’m Air-less.
Considering my father’s been using the Macbook Pro regularly I was a little shocked to see the show-off widget showing 134 days uptime!
That’s more than I get out of my windows servers at work.
I know many of you will leave comments saying you’ve seen up-times on windows servers/linux boxes, etc going into the years BUT for a laptop, that’s in use by my computer inept father to remain up for over 4 months is worth a screenshot at least:
There were, however, 500MB of updates waiting from Apple so it’s time to wave good-bye to the show-off uptime and follow in the footsteps of Windows and reboot!
