Out of curiosity, where can you find 23 year old USENET posts?

I don't know about 23 years, but I just scrolled to the bottom of my
newsreader, and it'd gone back to February 2008. Then I hit the big
"Get More" button on the toolbar, and it did, going back to November
2007. And again, and again. I'm now back to late 2004.

I have no idea where the bottom is, but 23 years does not seem
implausible at all.
