I never got close to 1200 days, but I had an SGI machine at home talking 
to uptimes.net.  I remember watching it from work as it got close to 
10000 hours (on the 416th day, 19th November 2002 according to syslog) 
when suddenly it went off the air.  It turned out the electricity 
provider had (accidentally) tripped the wrong breaker in the local 
substation.  Grr.
