Actually my server crashed between 00:59:52 and 01:03:53 CET so that is also very close to midnight GMT.
Like aputerguy it has been running continously for several years now, although unlike him the server was pretty busy running backups at the time of the crash.
It is running Debian testing and at that time Debian kernel 2.6.26-11.
Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes, and not rather a new wearer of clothes. -- Henry David Thoreau
