60 day old blog posts still important?

Last week some of you noted that the Chemical blogspace was no longer nicely updated every X hours. The code is not optimized for performance and the number of old posts (about 10k in 6 months!) made the break down. Or really, the DreamHost service killed the process after taking too long. Fair; it's the online way to keep the systems from not breaking down over one website. I already had split up processing the first 75 blogs and the rest into two separate jobs.

So, now I made a more radical change, and deleted old posts older than 60 days. That's ancient history, not?
