in thread Selected Best Nodes Archive

The "point" was I just wanted to know if it existed.

The reason is, a few days ago I followed a link (from one of tilly's posts) to the Selected Best Nodes and perused a few of them.

Today, I encountered a problem that I think one of the nodes I looked at there would answer. The problem is, I cannot remember what the node was called, nor it's author, and searching turned up too many hits for all the keywords I could think of.

So, I know I could find tilly's post with the link again, and that would give me the day and time. So then, *if* the list was being archived I could have gone to that days list and stood a much better chance of re-locating the post I was looking for.

As it is, I can't. No matter, I'll find it eventually.

    I don't suppose you checked your browser's history?

      Nice thought++. Unfortunately, I occasionally shut and re-open my browser to clear the accumulated tabs. I have my standard places in a startup profile, and the per-tab history restores to whatever it was there when the profile was last updated.

      As I didn't realise I wanted to look back until a couple of days later, it is unlikely it would have still been in there even if I had thought to look :(
