Wow! That's quite a history. Are those posts from 1998+ old diary entries?

Sounds like the website itself is old enough for an 'about me' page it!

The 1998 article is my homework from elementary school.
2002-2005 articles are diary entries, most of which were originally on paper; I typed them into computer around 2011.
Most of 2005-2008 articles are either copied from Windows Live Spaces, or converted from my college homework.

The starting of this website is documented in yoursunny.com/t/2006/yoursunny-com... article.

Prior to 2010, there were no Markdown. Everything was in HTML, either handwritten or generated by Word / WordPress / TinyMCE / Blogger / Windows Live Writer / Google Docs. Simpler pages were manually converted to Markdown. More complex pages are still in HTML, and my server side scripts have to accommodate that.

From time to time, I would discover a broken link, a typo, or other errors, from a page made 7~10 years ago, and I'm still fixing these.

I don't know what to do with the 4 pages using Shockwave Flash Player…
