OK Guys - I'm really confused: 1) Uptime refers to the time that the computer has been running since the last boot - correct? If so, then Nick's number indicates 2.2 years from my quick calculation; and 2) I can find my 'uptime' in the Terminal by typing that term & also information on recent boots by typing 'last reboot', again on the command line, but where in the Console?

Still trying to learn - thanks. Dave

Console is in /Applications/Utilities. It holds system logs.
