Is there a way that I can search old posts of mine, say from the year 2010?
Use the search function with your name. You can say "more recent than" but I don't think you can specify "older than".
Thanks, just curious what I wrote in 2010.
The search results are limited to 200, but you can limit the search to specific subforums, if there are less than 200 results you can see all. In the mathematics and astronomy sections you have various posts from 2009 and 2010.
Some clever googling can help as well.
Thanks for that! I have Googled myself on PF but not in that form.
So Google allows you to search a time frame and I can exclude the word spinor by putting a minus sign in front of the word,
gives many (all) of my posts between 2010 and 2011. Thanks.
I am not sure that it allows to search for the time frame - just numbers 2010 and 2011 are present on all the pages from 2010 and 2011, as date is displayed together with the message. It may give false positives if these numbers appear in the thread for whatever reason (this thread will be there soon).
Neat. I'm interested in that as well. Could you please post the exact Google search phrase you used instead of the resulting URL? Thanks.
Searching for "spinnor" in quotation marks should get rid of "spinor" false positives as well.
Google knows when a site first appeared and when it saw the last update, but that doesn't mean the post time has to be one of those times.
With your help I think I'm there, first Google search,
then when the results come back you can enter a time frame from the "Search Tools" tab.
Time to look at silly stuff from years ago! Thanks.
Edit, include -homework in the search to exclude my homework help posts.
Funny, if I narrow the Google search by time it seems Google excludes posts. With quotes around spinnor Boreks solution is the best it seems.
