By not running, it means the unique System + OS Install are no longer
running.  Maybe the user installed a new OS, or doesn't use that
machine.

A running machine updates its profile with smolts.org every 30 days by
default. 35 days is a metric that means the computer has not been
updated because a) smolt is disabled or b) the computer is not
running.

We haven't decided if we want to purge old data yet, but we're going
to rewrite our queries to give more up to date information.

The only edge case is a computer that is operational less than once a
month.  I'm not going to consider working around this.
