Where does one get a copy of the SVR4 spec these days? The link I could track
down went to which just ain't there no

And no, not because of a "DDOS". There isn't one. SCO's website IP moved

They didn't get the new DNS record propogated on time. Rookie mistake...

But looking at http.:// redirects you to the
/developer page. The devspecs page went away...

Is this mirrored somewhere?
