More good stuff at Hackosphere (subscribed, btw). This time Archive Browser, a tool that parses a year's worth of selected archive pages, and reformats the content onto a single page for quick browsing, as well as quick & broad "find-in-page" searches. Want to find that post that you wrote about Britney Spears last time she was pregnant? Want to search for the stuff you wrote about Wimbledon in 2004? Format your archives for browsing!
There are two options for implementing this hack:
1. For frequent use, you can add a widget to your sidebar which will allow you to select a year.
2. As a cure for occasional lapses of memory, you can head over to the Archive Browser page & input your blog's URL.
Some alternate uses: This would make a great backup tool, since the page containing a year's worth of archived goodies can be saved to your hard-drive, and stuff could then be cut & pasted back into your blog if required. On the same track, this might make a cool "publish your blog as a book" sort of tool.
