You guys are just picking out the low hanging fruit and not looking for
the underluying causes for such excellence in computing staying
power.....

I bring your attention to the CPU Load.......... = 0

This was Windows Server 2003 ??????

And then - CPU idle ............................ = 0

So no load but no idle time. Ergo - someone took out the CPU before the
test - subsequentely no crc on runaway clock cycles - and voila 272
years is the result........
