19sep2009 · Latest discoveries in hard disk archaeology

Recently I dug up an old hard disk (to be used in my Sun Blade 1000), and I found an old copy of my home directory on it. Even better, I found an even older backup of a thing I thought that was lost already: my first web site.

I could not resist putting it up, so here it is. I don’t think it ever went live, actually.

I made it in 2000/2001, so please bear with the bad English and table layouts. I also didn’t know of .png files, I guess.

The time stamp shows 2009, but that’s because I had to regenerate the site from its sources. It already used amazing technology: RCS-backed, make(1)-driven, and using cpp(1) for HTML generation is a hack I’m still proud of (well, except for the occasional <!-- ' --> to close an uneven number of quotes :-P).
