0	1I'm curious how often customers (that is, all you guys)
0	1end up booting their (your) machines, and what you boot them for.

0    1"Public" (shared) machines get booted about every-other day (the world gets
0    1too crufty to continue with). My personal machine about every 4-5 days as I
0    1run out of paging memory (I have 1 "190"meg disk <actually about 113 meg
0    1formatted: 110160 blocks> dedicated to paging, plus more on the other one:
0    1total -- about 119000 fep blocks, plus 4500 blocks to use when I forget and
0    1crash the machine w/no more pages so I can get up and save my buffers.).

0I hate to be the one to tell you this, but you're running with a 140MB disk,
not a 190MB disk. 140MB disks have 110160 blocks on them, 190MB disks have
146880. If you paid for a 190MB disk, you've been robbed.
