Wow, no I did not actually know that! Now I re-read the man page you're 
right, it clearly says that. It's just that whenever I've ran this 
command in past months it has *always* shown some entries whereas in the 
past month or two I've never seen it output anything at all. So it 
looked strange to me. It makes sense now though, thanks!
