Apologies that none of my pre-2008 posts are showing on this blog any more. I suspect this problem is down to Blogger's new 'Auto Pagination' policy to arbitrarily truncate everybody's main Blogger page. Unfortunately my simplified blog template has no archiving or 'older posts' interface, so for the moment the older posts will remain un-viewable. Rest assured that the posts are not lost: merely inaccessible.
I've only just come through the forced migration of this blog away from FTP hosting and now this!
Suffice to say many Blogger users are realizing the impact of the new policy and making their displeasure known to Google/Blogger.
