The archives were created by a separate process running on the webserver, which wasn't as stable as we'd have liked (though "daily reboots" are far from the truth). This process probably failed some time towards the end of Wrox's existence, which is probably why those posts don't show up.
In fact, looking at the archives, it seems that posts up to March 26 were archived correctly. Seeing as there was nobody at Arden House to administer the machines from close of business on March 14 (the day of the announced bankruptcy) onwards, that's pretty good going for a system that needed "daily reboots" ;) The Lyris server survived even longer than that from what I know, but unfortunately I think all those messages have been lost now...
