I started WordPress years ago at home on a Linux PC.

the Hello world! still in it. Dated Saturday, December 25, 2004 with a older WordPress.

I was keeping a diary on rolls of paper. Then a old TRS-80 and then a C=64 then the PC and found WordPress to use. With a RS-232 got all my old text from the TRS-80 and C=64 and added it in WordPress with the right old dates.

The paper one is way harder to get in the computer. No text reader I found will read it good. I have to type it in my hand and only did some.
