Seasons turn, newbies come and go, leaving postings that become legend.
Legend fades to FAQ. In a FAQ called the June FAQ, a FAQ yet to come,
a FAQ long past, a posting stirred.
This is the story of rec.arts.sf.written.robert-jordan, of those women
and men that dare to post what no one dared to post before ...

The Creator and his Wife
Here are pictures taken at the Darkfriend socials in DC (24 September 1994 and
and the signings in Chicago and Atlanta. Click on the images to see
larger version (and additional information).
There's a modified version
of the Atlanta picture, too.
And now for the portraits.
A picture of
FAQueen Pam Korda
Judy "Mesaana" Ghirardelli,
Judy Sedai and her Warder Tom,
and her fearful shadow:
Emmet O'Brien clearly states his favourite colour.
And here's a picture of myself,
As you can easily see, Bill "Fain" Garrett
has some similarity to
(cf. Cover of The Dragon Reborn).
Another argument for the discussion Fain = DO reborn? Well, I don't know.
Finally, the latest addition to the Jordanites page is the picture of the Ancestral DarkFriends
Some technical remarks
This page and that referenced in it may contain (at least will, one day)
a lot of pictures. This may cause large delays when
loading this page and will clobber the net when loaded more often than
necessary. There are several ways to cope with this:
Back to the Jordan hompage
- If you are using Mosaic, you can choose the option Delay Images.
Other WWW clients should have similar options.
This is very helpful, when you just want to see whether there are new
faces to look at or when you want to look at single images only.
This is, however, not the best way to do this.
- As the images won't change too often (usually only new ones will
be added) I would suggest that you ask your local WWW guru whether
there is a proxy caching http server
near your site. This will speed up loading the images and will spare
net resources. For more information on proxy servers (anyone who is running
a UN*Xoid OS should run one right on the system) look at the documentation
for the CERN httpd (which at the moment beats the NCSA httpd) or contact me.
