24x7 vs 24x7x365 Re: Constant Abuse Reports / Borderline Spamming from RiskIQ

So Iâ??m taking this thread for a total test-drive and weâ??re going down this random ally...

I call our NOC â??24x7x365â??  I hear that in my head as â??twenty-four (hour) - BY - Seven (days a week) - BY - 365 (days a year, indicating we donâ??t close on any holidays).

Is that really not a thing?  I swear Iâ??ve been hearing it as a term of art in the industry for 20 years.    Google has 1.42m results for 24x7x365 - but 72mil for 24x7.

Should I change my website or what?

Thanks for indulging me :)
