A minor correction, for today (2006-06-21), "-mtime +21" is the correct
switch to find files before June, "-mtime -16" would get you all files
newer than 16 days ago. Sorry about the mistake.

But for something like this:

    touch -amt 200606010000.00 foo
    find . ! -newer foo

is more exact and is probably what the OP should use.
