in thread CB history - not an hour any more?

I've been more concerned with a separate issue which is attempting to get a better handle on what an otherwise incompetent communicator is trying to say by looking at their previous statements. A lot of people come asking for help here and only give us bits and pieces at a time but if you string together their statements over hours or days the complete picture comes together. For those people I want to do a grep of everything they have said, ever. I sometimes do this.

I've also often used a similar program to http://grenekatz.org/cgi-bin/cbsince to catch up on what was said while I was out for an hour or so (usually because I was interested in what was there when I left). This would be nicer if paged but it was easier to just display everything at once. I don't know what else you were looking for other than displaying less on a single page.

    If you string together everything I've ever said, you can just make out that I'd like less displayed per page and some way to restrict access based on seniority (PerlMonks level). But then, if there is little enough concern with making access to 24 hours of chatter "more difficult", then there is little point in doing the second item which is certainly more difficult. I guess we'll see.

    My "in the mean time" was suggesting that you remove access to that old of chatter while we wait to see what the consensus is. Note that I'm not demanding this, just asking.

      Yah. I keep wanting to do things that require getting a user's authentication but I never get around to it because its an awkward issue. In the interim I've just rot13ed it so that while people can see what is under discussion, it isn't just a plainly visible log.
