a recent isp issued caused me to remember just exactly what “uptime” means...here's a little taste:
guarantee % allowable downtime annually 99.9999 holy crap < 1 minute (six sigma) 99.999 5.2 minutes (famous "5 nines") 99.99 52.5 minutes 99.9 525.6 minutes (8.76 hours) 99 5256 minutes (87.6 hours) if you are "lucky" to have a provider giving you a 90% guarantee, congrats, you could be down for an acceptable 36.5 days per year
