Any easy way to find very old wall posts? (Facebook)

On Myspace I used to love going back and reading old comments from years ago. It was easy. All you had to do was click on the pages (and you could skip 5-10 at a time) until you got to the year and month that you were looking for. Facebook is so useless in trying to do this - unless you all know something I don't.

Example: I want to find a few wall posts from a friend from last year. Do you know how hard that is on Facebook? You have to hit "Older Posts" for an hour. That's just ridiculous. I've often wondered why Facebook doesn't make it easier to find specific wall posts. Most have thousands of wall posts and some have real personal significance. But with the way things are currently laid out, you're likely to unfortunately never see those posts again.

Is there a way to search certain dates or friends? If not, that is one HUGE flaw and something facebook needs to consider adding. I don't know if anyone else even feels this way, but I do and have for some time.

I got a gift card on my wall and didn't know. Now I can't go back and find it. Amazon was of no help when I tryed to call.

I wrote an app that will let you perform a text search for your Facebook photo albums, videos, notes, status posts and recent events: http://www.facebook.com/appcenter/searchforposts

Ok, I found this:

Go to your friends facebook profile
just below the comment box (wall box) there is a link called filter
press that button or link
then there will be four option. out of the four options click the far right which says wall to wall

It works but what about those people who you're no longer friends with? I also found a Firefox extension that I'm going to try out.

Ugh! A search option to filter by date and name - past friend or not - would be so much simpler!
