Camille is my personal MacIvory development machine:

Symbolics System, FEP0:>cl-http-world.ilod.1
MacIvory model 3 Processor, 7.9M words Physical memory, 63.5M words Swapping space.
 Genera  8.3
Lavielle CAMILLE

Type c-_ H for Help.
Type Set Remote Terminal Options to set the terminal type.
Warning:  CAMILLE is a server machine.  Please exercise caution.

Command: (neti:uptime)
Host Name                Time up
CAMILLE                  15 weeks 2 days 10 hours 3 minutes 30 seconds
DF                       2 weeks 1 day 12 hours 41 minutes 55 seconds
TLE                      5 weeks 1 day 11 hours 16 minutes 46 seconds
