While talking with Prairie about how Macs generally tend to have long lifespans, I looked up the original introduction date for the 350Mhz Blue and White G3 that acts as the webserver for my site, and found out that it was originally introduced on January 5th, 1995 1999.

That’s just a few days over ten six years that this machine has been around, and it’s been running pretty much 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the four years that I’ve owned it (I bought it used in February of ’01). It’s still going strong, too, chugging right along day after day.

Not bad…not bad at all.

_Wow_, I’m a dork. I really don’t know how I managed to confuse ’99 and ’95 when I was looking up the date, but apparently I did. Thanks to Dan for pointing that out.

Six years still isn’t bad, though…
