It seems that Tuesday, the 13th (13/2/1204 was a tuesday) is only
in Spanish-speaking countries seen as "bad day" due to
Reviewing more background showed that the Friday the 13th was not
generally known as unlucky day since the novel "Friday the 13th"
from Thomas William Lawson released 1907 and it in fact has nothing
to do with the Templars despite the possible source of inspiration :-)

Yup, that means Solaris 10 only (or gcc :-( ).
