PEBKAC, bad hardware and possibly kernel upgrades is the only reason to 
reboot a unix server.. i have seen uptimes greater than a couple of 
years on some of my servers.. We had to take them down to be completely 
replaced with newer hardware.

One server i worked on at pair networks (in a previous life) had close 
to a 4 figure uptime (running freebsd).
