I see a showpostTC.htm that (at least seems to) work?

I fetched the latest back up (2012-04-22) and restored showpostTC.html
for you in either case.

I'm not sure what could have caused it to blank -- do you regularly
write to this file to add posts? There may have been a blip in network
connectivity for a moment when storing the file causing it to be lost,
but IIRC AFS semanstics would just give you the old file then...

Let me know if you need anything else restored. Hopefully this proves to
be nothing more than a heisenbug.
