My Nokia IP330 running 1.21 has 86 days of uptime so far with no problems. 
I'm a little nervous about upgrading it after reading reports of lockups.

I haven't deployed a monowall yet, but I need a very reliable firewall for

power cable! I haven't followed this thread, but how prevalant is the freeze
