Where have all the old posts gone?

I remember reading a very nice discussion on software estimation. I was trying to find it but was not able to. Are the old posts archived anywhere. Or are they gone for good?

alternatively check out http://www.usabilitymustdie.com/jos/WW_MonthlyStats.html

If the post was popular, it might have made the top 200. Alternatively, if you know some of the posters, look at their DNA/posting history.

good luck

Thanks a lot Tapiwa. I found the discussion by giving a seach term in google. It would be nice if they could have an archive here. Though some discussions go off topic many have good points them.

There is an archive, you just can't see it.

At least Joel more-or-less fixed Google search so Google doesn't have 50 versions of a page with various &ixreplies=123456 in the URL. So that's some acknowledgement of the need for a way to find the archive.

Maybe instead of the (he admits) broken SQL search, he should just stick Google search on the page.
