Home of Eddings fanatics worldwide. First appeared in the early 1990s,
and if anyone knows the actual date it was created, let me know. (I
know I started reading regularly in January, 1993, and it had already
been around for a while then). A comfortable newsgroup with moderate
traffic (usually around 20-30 messages a day, depending on the time of
year, whether a new book has come out recently, and the level of spam
on the Net) - feel free to drop in and join us.
Thanks in large part to the efforts of Ian Hutcherson and Rumor, we
now have our own channel on IRC. #Eddings channels are certainly
welcome to be formed on any net, but the one that seems to be the
unofficial one is on Espernet. I'll include a list of the servers as
soon as I get the information from Rumor. The unofficial meeting time
that seems to work for most interested people is Friday and/or
Saturday, about 7pm-9pm Eastern (USA) Standard Time, 12am-2am
Greenwich Standard Time, but feel free to check in anytime.
