    God DAMN the Search function here blows.

    I searched for some crap I'd posted back in 2005 or so on a very specific topic. Neither my name nor the topic are vague or confusing. Here's what the so-called search engine coughed up:

    Makes about as much sense as a Roberts ruling, or a Higgs Boson announcement <<<<<< politics and physics content.

    Dear Senile Old Fart,

    Everyone knows that you can't remember what you did yesterday. Certainly not what you posted 7 years ago. Hell, you were probably working to reelect Richard Nixon back then.

    Sincerely,

    Mike

    PLUS, if you click on your own name and check 'Find Other Posts By This Nimrod,' you'll discover you can only go back 12 'pages,' which is like May.

    I never did like this goddam software. Worse than voting with hanging chads <<<<<< politics content

    Which is precisely WHY I need a search engine that isn't as useless as pablum-spewing teats on an effing-off boarhog.

    I knew that you were a Nixon man.

    Buchanan, Liddy, and Novak???

    The key part is "Nixon was guilty of no crime"

    Outstanding. Now, find me posting about a hundred-mile time trial I was proposing to do. This was after Nixon died, and well before the Roberts ruling.

    Don't dwell in the past, the future is now and it's only limited by your imagination.

    Speaking of Roberts, go to this thread. I think you might agree with AM999's highly imaginative new thread.

    I'm giving you, like, a half-dozen passes for anything annoying you might say here in the next little while THANKS! Worked like a charm.

    You nailed it! I was trying to figure for sure what year that was. Lord, eight years ago. I'm thinking about trying it again. Hard to believe Bush was president then, and now we have a colored Kenyan in office. Like an alternate universe. <<<<<<< political and physics content

    Back on topic (-ish), my layman's understanding of the inifinite multiverses theory is that in fact we are always in one of infinity "alternate universes"

    Sort of the physics equivalent to the internet rule 34.

    That was the earliest post I could find of yours. I wasn't looking for anything specific, just the earliest post in the database.

    too bad, huh?

    I've been posting here since before there WAS a 'here' -- on Roadies Rejoice, a little ghetto for roadies on MTB Review. I ended up there because I was one of them long-time mountain bikers looking to go road. Sometimes I'll do a search and find old stuff from back then, but it's spotty and random.

    I had other names back then. Of course.
