Server no reboot for 805 days

My server placed in a data center had not been rebooted for over 805 days. Frankly, if there is a fault and if I need to go to the data center for repair, I might find the place but can not remember which rack houses the equipment. Then on 7 December 2011, the server lost connection to the outside world. I sought help from the serving ISP and it told me that the port on the Ethernet switch did not detect any connection. The ISP then called a technician in the data center and it was found the power cable did not plug firmly to the power supply unit. After properly tightened the power cord and reboot, everything got back to normal.

Damn it, my goal of no server reboot for 1000 days just crashed.
