Is there some way that I can do a search on a basis of date of front page publication, or bring up a list of past front pages?

I'm trying to track down some external links that I believe came up in the conversations attached to the June Front Page articles.

Not sure about Pliny, but editors were always able to search archived Ripley skin front pages. I'd be very surprised if they couldn't dig this out for you, but in case they can't you might want to do an advanced search on conversations and type in a few keywords relevant to the links.

I can hopefully dig this out for you indeed, but you might need to give me a smiley - boing if I don't manage it soon...

As a matter of fact what I'm looking for is astronomical notes in an external link from a conversation associated with a front page arcticle.

...not likely to come up in the internal search engines.

It'll still appear in conversation search. Do you remember any specifics?

Not rnough, I'm afraid (already tried that).

The specific item I'm looking for is a computer modeling program that allows three dimensional rotations of cross sections of large scale cosmological structures, like cross sections of cosmic voids.

(Lost my notes to a default reset.)

I've seen the program demonstrated on TV and it is visually effective.

Try that for starters - all the other Front Pages in June don't have Entries that look like there would be astronomical conversations attached to them...
