never reched such a long uptime. Anyway I always had problems, even with
much shorter uptimes, whenever I used servers without ECC memory modules.
AFAIK 1 Mbit of DRAM (megabit *not* megabyte) looses about one bit a month
on the average. In my experience uptimes longer then a week on non ECC
system may be really dangerous.

Hope it helps.
