Back to the future

I searched the web for an eventual implementation of COMPLEX for 
ISE/ECMA discovering this blog http://www.eiffellanguage.info .
Then I read http://www.eiffellanguage.info/differences-in-se-and-ise :

    /What are the main differences between ISE Eiffel and SmallEiffel ? /

    /I'm currently using SmallEiffel -0.89 on an Amiga 1200. My
    University uses
    ISE Eiffel. /

    /Thanks in advance.

    /

I check two times the date on my system. SmallEiffel -0.89? Amiga 1200? 
He seems to be stuck in 1994 or something like that.
The blog has been actually created in 2010 and seems to be in use, but 
they keep making references to Windows NT, Tower Eiffel, giving me a 
subtle impression that it is a either a really educated joke or that 
some people are stuck in the past.
Do you have further informations about it?

All the blog feels pretty old. When asked, the Eiffel reference is ETL (not
ECMA), references to SmallEiffel and SIG, dead links, Europe is "EEC"…

I have the eerie feeling of a space-time crack :-)

Space-time crack in the form of russian guy using eiffel.lang.comp and 
google to raise money:
This glob post 
<http://www.eiffellanguage.info/how-is-an-eiffel-compiler-done> labelled 
28 sept 2011 is *exactly* this post 

<https://groups.google.com/groups/search?hl=it&q=How+is+an+Eiffel+compiler+done%3F&qt_s=Cerca+nei+gruppi>

from 26 oct 1996.
Quite surprisingly machine changed but problems seems remain the same... 
it's 15 years that Meyer tries to implement SCOOP... :)
And quite surprisingly ISE seems not to have complexes.....
