If the owner archived it in 2004 he should have picked it up. Not knowing
that it was archived or not when you found it, you might have been picking
up a cache that has just been very difficult to find (not likely). I would
say, given the last log was 7 years ago, you did the right thing by picking
the cache up and contacting the owner.
