Please, teach me: how do you manage to get Linux uptime this long (a year,
or even 220 days). In my observation at least once every 45 days there is
either Kernel security update or glibc one. And each one of them required
machine reboot. And all Linux distributions are based both on Linux kernel
and on glibc.

Thanks in advance for your insight!
