Started to write computer programs using Algol 60 and Fortran running on a mainframe computer.
My first own Python scripts are dated 2003.

For more details on this subject check out the thread " Wanted: Python module allowing direct access to raw sectors of harddrives (MFT, boot sector, etc.) in MS Windows ", initiated on 2005-10-10 in comp.lang.python.
# 2005-04-09 : posted to comp.lang.python a Python script (pyMBM.py) querying the shared memory area exposed by the freeware MBM 5 utility (available from http://mbm.livewiredev.com/) for tracking motherboard sensory information as temperatures, fan speeds and voltages.
# 2005-02-07 : uploaded my own version of Console.py to http://people.freenet.de/AiTI-IT/Python/Console.py Console.py is part of the readline module and is used by e.g. IPython. In my version the (extended) Console() class supports any ANSI escape sequences of the form ESC[#m and ESC[#,#m , making it possible to set any by console supported text and background colors.
