OK, that would be great to have online. I _think_ the hardcopy I have
(somewhere! :-) is that report, but my memory should not be trusted.
The people working on TCP/IP did know of the Spider work (like they knew of
the Cambridge ring work), but it didn't really have any impact; it was a
totally different direction than the one we were going in.

Yes, I looked and found the original source, appended below.

I wonder if we'll ever be able to find a copy of the kernel code for that
tiu() system call. And I wonder what it did?
 Oldest alarm() code I can find is in PWB1
Either alarm existed in V5 and V6 .. or is was added after V6 was
released, perhaps soon after. In the latter case the 'nfs' code that we
have must be later than 1974
Remember, that source came from the MIT system, which is a modified PWB1.
So it's not surprising it's using PWB1 system calls.
