Elly's Slice of Cyberpie
Classic Elly Jordaan Journal Entries
If you're on an IP address in the fred.net or tscnet.net domains, you'll need to go here first (unless you just went there). It's slow but it works.
Many of these entries are archived locally here in my website; in September, 1997 Elly deleted all her journal entries, and I've restored many from the Internet Archive using the Alexa service. Such restored entries (and the entries of others restored from the archive) are indicated with *. Other pages stored within my site are indicated with *.
