I've been watching my profile on gamedev.net, and i noticed one of my old posts have been deleted.
I don't feel offended or anything because i probably told something not appropriate, but i am interested what was that.
I cannot learn from my mistakes if i have no access to them, and post i'm talking about isn't visible in posts in my profile - only in statistics.
So yeah, nothing important but i'm curious, how do i find it?

It may be a bug on my end, but I don't see any posts of yours (besides this one).
(also, moving you to Comments and Suggestions, where this belongs)

I don't really understand what's going on because posts section is now empty ( i was looking through it like 30 minutes ago ), but here is example of post (or maybe site have multiple and separate sections that i'm not aware of ).
Edit: My guess would be:
I joined my account with google-one quite a while ago, but didn't posted from it yet. Today i logged-in with google, and my old posts are not displayed because of that.

Unfortunately this does sometimes make it more difficult to find some of your older posts, but if you have an idea of a certain post you're trying to find you should be able to find it using the Google site search box provided towards the upper right.
This is just a guess though -- it is possible you somehow have two different accounts, but if so it's not obvious as Drew ("Gaiiden") says -- if you have any additional information that may help us to search for such an account Drew I or will be happy to have another look for you; just post or private message either of us any information you think might help.

The quotation marks tell Google to ignore anything that doesn't exactly match your request, so you can locate your stuff without going through tons of related results.
The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.
