It only took a little bit of effort (notably abandoning the Unix
date/time stamp, which doesn't go before 1-Jan-1970 UTC, and
switching to a system without so much lossage) to get
the date stamps on the PDP-10 freeware archive entries at


to be correct. Now, if you go and look at a directory
in the TOPS-10 or TOPS-20 categories, you will see the original
date/time stamps as on the DECUS library tapes. Take a look


for an example.

Thanks to a couple of old-timers who persuaded me that
I really shouldn't list the creation dates on these files as
being 1999, when this can be off by over thirty years :-)
