I know you guys are busy in there at Fog Creek but how about allowing us to access older topics that are no longer in the main list?

There is a way to view some older topics .. if they relate to an article.

I've found that if I go to the article, and click on Joel's "Discuss" link at the end, it will usually take me to the topic.

A good Techinterview question is figuring out how to find all the articles.  Maybe bonus brain points if you can write a script under 10 functional lines to retrieve all of them, which waits random time lengths so it doesn't seem like a DoS attack.

(I might be miffed if Joel removes them now...  ;-)  Though I agree that too many messages has an ossifying effect on forums.  Good riddance.)
