For folks who've been unable to retrieve posts made from over 1 year ago and/or have made over 1000 posts:

4) Under "Search Options" set "Find Posts from" to A Year Ago and the next button to "And Older"

5) Also under "Search Options" set "Sort Results by" to "Thread starting date" and "ascending order".

6) Set "Search in forums" to only 1 forum (such as "Talking Tarot").

This all limits the number of posts that are found. You may have to do a few searches to find your very first post, but it should work for you.
