Personal history in ~, Unix history in a quiz

There’s an oldest file meme, first seen here, where you find the oldest files in your home directory and figure out where they came from.  The page I linked to uses a Linux-specific search, but some other pages have a scripted way to do it that should work on DragonFly.

I also found a link to a Unix History quiz from the same location, with some answers.  It’s a tough quiz.
