Well EXCUSE me .. did you happen to work on the 9/11 commission? You seem to be interested in dealing with things that only coincide with your version of reality. My reality is that OS X (server) is extremely unreliable. I'll try re-imaging everything tomorrow and see if that helps otherwise, back to Cupertino it goes. Could be infant mortality, could be its designed to be this flakey. Either way, unless it works for me, its useless.

My version of reality is that my OSX.4 installation has been restarted only after OS updates. I just restarted it for the first time since last month's update after I installed 2005-007. I have been running OSX, in various incarnations, for close to 5 years and have had only one crash... and that was on OSX.0 when it first came out. Since then it has NEVER crashed. The OSX computers (servers and workstations) I administer for several businesses have never crashed.

Then here you come, out of the blue, with your "most unstable pile of dung I've seen" comments that are contrary to all industry reports and my, and a host of other Mac users, experience. You use terminology that is NOT used by Apple, you blythely toss out the possibility of "a virus" when no viruses have every been reported infecting Mac OSX, and do not answer questions about your configuration. I wonder why you bought a Mac OSX Server in the first place.

Now, it is indeed possible that you have a defective Apple computer that you are using for your server... or you have a defective Apple Airport Extreme Base Station... that is causing your problems, but it is highly unlikely that it is OSX. Too many enterprise networks operate on Apache and BSDUnix for that to be likely.
