4 years ago? I've had that in mere months.

Then again going to admit sometimes on purpose...

Now back before google if I solved something I might have thought to myself: damn that's good, I should remember this, perhaps even making some sort of bookmark, i.e. //SPECIAL-COMMENT-FOR-FUTURE (though usually just a mental note).
Months/years later: damned if I can remember where I did X, ok, I added a comment, lets search for IMPORTANT_COMMENT ... yeah, results not so good.

Nowadays:
stuck on something... lets try google: yup, found some OK-ish solutions. but after seeing how they did (or even just describe the issue) figure out my own better way (or not).
OK post it into CP (or lets face it, onto SO)
Guess what, when I want to remember I'll just google it back. Nicely categorised, and quite fast too.

Yeah using message boards as a personal repository - is that a bad thing?
