I added a link to posts from one year ago May 8, 2001 7:15 PM   Subscribe

I added a link to posts from one year ago on the sideblog area, and incedentally, you can go to any previous day by manipulating the date string in the URL for that daily.mefi page. Someone requested this a while back, and it was only a couple minutes of work to create.

Hey, thanks! Oddly enough, was looking at one year ago today earlier today to see how many of the links came from major news sources. Great new feature.

I believe I also asked for FIVE and TEN years ago on Metafilter. Where's that, huh?

Like Matt said, you just manually change the date. =)

I love the new feature... I remember us talking about something along those lines before. Very cool. Can we bring more attention to it, though? Maybe putting it onto the flow of the page, somehow. Might I suggest having it next to the date at the top?

Quite cool. MetaFilter's own "Tempus Fugit." It's going to become a daily routine to check out what people were gumming over a year ago.
