Default That annoying moment

when you think you"ve saved an intriguing snippet from someone's thread but you haven't, and now can't find it on the forum.

If you can recall a phrase from it, the search function can find it for you. Better still if you know the author, and approximately when it was posted.

I have the same problem with newspaper searches. I don't always remember to bookmark articles.
Then I can't remember what search terms I used to find it in the first place.
Then I find bookmarked articles don't have the indicators, so I have to try to remember where on the page it was. It can take a comically long time.

Speaking only for myself, I'm not sure I'm cut out for this research lark

All the best.

In a newspaper archive, jot down the title and date of the newspaper with the article that caught your eye. (I haven't got the hang of their clipping tool yet).
