Well, I have decided to work my way through my tags and selectively restore some posts. I have made it through the tags that start with 'r'.
I am generally not restoring posts that present: found photo dumps (that which started all this), lists of links, present merely 'newsy items', are old news, are of a personal nature and not generally interesting.
The only good news in this process is that I'm reading a lot of my old stuff, which I obviously found interesting or I wouldn't have posted it :)
I probably won't say more until I'm done. Thanks for 'listening'.
