Hey tufty ... | SCOXQ Message Board Posts
  • TECH UPDATE: Please accept our apologies for the delay in getting our "board visit & message view" counts to normalize. As you may have noticed, starting yesterday the "board stats" for individual message boards started to display clearly erroneous "member" and "guest" visit counts. Needless to say, we don't like having unreliable traffic stats on the site any more than you do. Please understand this was not by design or intention. It's a glitch that resulted from an apparent incompatibility with the legacy code and the recent deployment of new servers to tackle issues related to last month's outage. In order to give our web developer a chance to take a closer look at the glitch and come up with a viable solution, we have decided to leave the code up for now so she can have real-world data to work with (rather than just turn the counts off again). So it looks like we may have to live with these bad counts a little longer, but our expectation is to have this resolved by early next week, if not sooner. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Re: Hey tufty ...

Nice try, numbnuts.
That's from 1983.  SysV R4 was issued in … 1988.  Now HP/UX was pretty good, better than the SysV R3 it was based on, in 1983, but I'm fairly sure it didn't have time travel capabilities.  It may not have actually moved to the SysVR4 codebase, I'm not sure*, but it certainly moved to a SysVR4 system and userland layout with the introduction of HP/UX 10 or so.  Loads of files moved, which was a code-breaking issue, particularly for some of the middleware we were using at the time.
As for AIX, again, early versions of AIX were based on SysVR3, and AIX 3.1 and later were based on - ta-daaaa - SysVR4.  Maybe you should try grepping Caldera's complaints and discovery requests for 'AIX'.
Irix, BTW, got SysVR4 in 1991.
I'm sure you can find some emails from 1927 "disproving" my actual real world experience, though. 
* The beauty of *n*x systems is that you almost always** don't care what actual kernel is running under your code.  But I thought it was SysVR4 that brought shared library support around 1990 or so.  Not a code breaking issue, but we had to rejig build systems.
** About the only major issue I hit that involved much more than a recompile was Sun's decision to go from their own threading mechanism to pthreads.  That one hurt.
