Thanks Stan - no it wasn’t anything to do with uptime. It was like a museum but people registered/listed their machines with some info about them and some pictures.

By any chance, are you thinking of uptimes.net?
Some years ago (early 2000's?) it was tracking systems uptimes. I had an Alpha system talking to it at one time.
IIRC, the record at one time was a VAX cluster, with an uptime of 1200+ days. Windows NT systems fared a lot worse, average of about 40 some days....
