Found this from another cl! If you are looking for a particular date (like you want to see the board from a year ago). Here's how:

Click on "archives" up in the header.

At the bottom of the first archive page click "MORE" to see the 2nd page.

Now look at the URL.

It's a bunch of gobbledygook, but in the middle you will see a string of characters like this: "3%2F24%2F2003" That represents the date 3/24/03.

So if you wanted to see posts from a year ago today, you change that string to read 3%2F28%2F2002 and you'll go to that date.

So if you know about when something was posted, you can get near the date and then check nearby dates to hopefully find what you are looking for.

BTW - for some reason my cl hat is broken and even though I'm signed in with it it's not showing up. Grrr.
