The kernels boot but uname -a says "Sat Sep 13 23:57:23 Time zone not s" which cuts off the year. May seem silly but having to use Wolfram Alpha to calculate what year the 13th of September fell on a Saturday is a bit annoying when you're dealing with servers with long uptimes... (The answer is 2014 and I pulled that from an old log. Don't worry, I'm not actually running anything that old on anything.) Best regards, - --arw - -- A.
