I believe there is at least 2 ways to achieve this without a security risk: 1. The updates were completed without rebooting (ie hot swapping the kernel). 2. The system was behind a firewall and not used for anything except maybe backups and/or file server. I know of an old system that ran for 3 1/2 years like this- name: Mother. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
