What would become of the historical messages in the archive? I still search the 
archives to find information I use from past topics.

Idea: a mongo (or ?) database to store and keep that contains all those past 
topics and comments. 

Anyone who has not searched the archives should. There are so many things 
answered and discussed over and over again. New members should first search 
before writing the list for this reason. Most newbies will fond their answers 

Now moving to a new way (Google) would to me seem to need to also bring along 
that history in some form to avoid repeatedly answering already discussed 
topics. Is there a way? Do I make sense?
