Another cool snippet from Torsten to browse IRC logs:
|topic day url sub| 
topic := HelpTopic named: 'Last week on Squeak IRC'. 
0 to: 7 do: [:index | 
  day := (Date today subtractDays: index) printFormat: #(3 2 1 $. 1 2 2). 
  url := '' , day. 
  sub := HelpTopic 
    title: day contents: (HTTPLoader default retrieveContentsFor: url) contents. 
    topic addSubtopic: sub.
