Unix in those days operated in a state of continuous development and integration. For example, Dennis did most of his compiler work between midnight and 4 AM. We would come in almost every day to find a new C compiler, with yesterday’s compiler tucked away in a known place. Most of the time we never noticed. But if there was a problem we sent email to Dennis and used the previous compiler. When Dennis came in after lunch, the bug was usually fixed in an hour or two. The rest of us operated in a similar fashion.
