Scripts from the past

On Friday I was trying to modify the way IS MU cluster uses for time synchronization - it turned out that the new servers in the IS MU cluster skew the clock - the clock is about 6.5s a day faster than the reference time. (the servers are based on Tyan Tomcat boards, which are - with the exception of this problem - excellent boards).

I have looked into the script we use to glue rdate(1), hwclock(8), and system logging together. There were the following lines written near the top of the script:

# Simple front_end to rdate (1)
# Nastaveni casu po siti.
# Jan Kasprzak 18.10. 1994

It seems that even in 1994 there was rdate(1), hwclock(8), and I used them both on Linux systems. How old is the oldest software you wrote which is still runing on your computers?

Wow, my oldest untouched code is from 1999. And it seems to me as funny as in 1999. :)
