Bug Description

I don't why that was included but it shouldn't be. Please remove it.

There is this comment next to the uptime grabbing:
# Some messages may only be pertinent before or after some amount of uptime
read up idle < /proc/uptime
uptime="uptime/$up/$idle"

As far as I know, this was never used, as the server serves static content.
