I discovered today that the laptop I broke when I dropped it on the floor and thought didn’t work, actually works again – so I’ve been able to recover the posts from Obooki’s early days which I thought lost to posterity.
Anyway, here is the archive so far for Feb-Apr 2008: I’ll post up the rest when I’m at a loss for anything to do. You can access them also, somewhere on the left.
[I found the full archive, and have put it here (in a somewhat annoying format, but one that was simple enough to create and upload). Might take a moment or two to load up in the browser.]
A few of them (but very few) are posted as part of the main blog. (There was that one about What is Fact?, which I remembered during our debate about history – but I was frustrated I couldn’t find the second post on the topic. – Well, it’s there now).
Also, LeroyHunter just mentioned Melville’s Le Silence de la Mer, and I was thinking to myself that I’d never even heard of it. Well, I guess I must have heard of it, because I watched it and even reviewed back in March 2008.
I used to write a lot of posts back then – perhaps because I wasn’t working full-time, or I was enthusiastic or something.
Actually, now I look into the matter, the gap in the blog is between 30/11/08 and 04/12/09 – though all the posts from 30/11/08 backwards are badly formatted.
Here’s a picture of one of the cats who often seek sanctuary in Obooki’s flat:
