It might be worth leaving a comment with a means of him contacting you. Obviously he hasn't updated for quite some time but a lot of bloggers use the setting in Blogspot that sends all comments to their own mailbox and as he hasn't actually closed the blog that might still be working if he hasn't changed email addresses. Worth a try if it's important. Also he might post on the Ely Forum http://elyforum.yuku.com/
so you could try leaving a message there.
Update: Just looked at Ely Forum, seems deader than the dodo.
