old threads

sandra_dFebruary 3, 2003

Hi Everyone - I haven't been around at all lately & am reading lots to catch up. My FIL passed away 2 weeks ago & we have had family here from England & Ireland. Everyone is back home now & life resumes. Can anyone tell me how to access old threads, say from the past year or two. Like the question about the fish in the bag - I wouldn't mind re-reading some of the old posts, but am unable to go back much more than a few months. Thanks everyone, Sandra

Hi Sandra. I'm sorry about your loss. I had noticed your absence, but I'm glad you're back.

They don't permanently archive threads here...once a post is past page "8"-it's history. Sometimes, if you Google search and come up w/an old thread and click on it - you'll get that "message is gone" ominous screen...but if you click on the "cached" link (from the Google search--at the end, past the URL) - Google will pull the thread up from the bowels of the net. It's a pretty neat thing to try if you need it.

Glad you're back!

Try archive.org...it's just what it sounds like, an archive of the net. It's not always complete but you'd be surprised.

Success! I was able to access old threads using google &
clicking on the "cached" link like you suggested, Jill. Thanks again, Sandra

I'm glad that worked for you. I found that out a while back and it's been SO great...especially when you do a search and find something that interest you and you click on the link and it doesn't work. The "cached" button almost always brings something up!
