Just for giggles, here's a machine that totally predates me.  It is no 
longer in use, and it's running FreeBSD 4.3.  It regularly spits out some 
errors about the drive having some issues reading some blocks:

(da0:ahc0:0:0:0): READ(10). CDB: 28 0 0 3c 4b 4d 0 0 2 0
(da0:ahc0:0:0:0): RECOVERED ERROR info:3c4b4e asc:17,1
(da0:ahc0:0:0:0): Recovered data with retries field replaceable unit: d0 

I'm fairly certain that if it were powered down there is a good chance the 
drive would not spin back up.  That said:

spork at nameserver[~]$ uptime
  2:30PM  up 1872 days,  1:55, 1 user, load averages: 0.01, 0.02, 0.00

Absolutely insane, as it used to actually do real work.  It's been through 
9/11 and a few subsequet blackouts, but 111 8th avenue kicks ass. :)
