There is an oldest file meme going on. Simply run

find ~ -print0 | xargs -0 stat -c '%y %n' | sort | less

And wait a bit. (Or longer. I have 583489 files.) And then tell something about your oldest files. Unfortunately some .tar are awefully broken and have mtime 0. Next up,

2000-10-07 ~/projects/addsp/makefile

I guess that’s one of the earliest programs I ever wrote in C: “Add spaces at beginning of line.” I wonder why I wrote that.

A very naive implementation of a curses-like library.

First serious blog, you can see I used GNU Arch back then.

The rest is history! ;)

(I’m sure I’d have even older files on some backup images somewhere… Especially I’d like to find my first ever homepage.)
