This shirt was done by the system administrators at the IBM T. J. Watson research center to poke a bit of fun at their non-UNIX brethren. The statement ``Peace, Love, & Rdist'' summed up how UNIX Systems Administration was done by Mathnet, a precursor to IBM's Agora project. The picture is taken from the front cover of the 4.3 BSD manuals published by the Usenix association, with the addition of flowers on the BSD Daemon's head and pitchfork. The artwork was done by Scott Kennedy and Lee Damon. The shirt was first distributed at the 1991 Usenix conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The first printing was brown ink on yellow (Scott's favorite): the second printing was red ink on mint (Lee's favorite).
