I've been perusing it... I can't find any of my own posting prior to
the Great Renaming (net.micro.amiga, etc.) In fact, I can see in
one of the traffic groups my upstream feed telling the other UUCP
admins that we were off the air (and I was out of a job ;-) but I that's
one of the oldest messages with my name in it. None of my _actual_
posts appears until late 1987.

Guess even with 7+E08 messages, there's still gaps.
