Re: It might be a while before some of us pass that way again
I’m not sure that’s always the case.
From a hardware point of view the shock to a system is at power up.
And even software For example I ran about ten windows 7 “machines” on vSphere on the “one task per machine” requirement. And unless a critical update forced a restart, some of those machines were never rebooted. In an 18 year period some of those machine never fell over. Probably the “one task per machine” is the clue.
