Subject: What was the FKFIC-L website?

In having a look through the Dusty Vaults of Knightwind's Nook, I came
across a post that was made by Darkangel on on 27 April 1996.  In it, she
says that she is closing down the FKFIC-L *website*.

Now, I know about the FTP site (but that's clearly not what she means).  I
also know about Mel's site:  it was started in 1996, on her personal site;
and she registered the domain name www.fkfanfic.com that October.  I have
not, however, heard about any site run by Darkangel except JADFE (and this
is not that, either).

What I do know about Darkangel's FKFIC-L website, from a comment by
Stormsinger, is that was apparently, "the organization that went into the
web site was phenomenal".

If it helps, this is what Darkangel wrote:

Any info people can post about this would be helpful.  Also about this
CD-ROM.  (Was it, for example, used by Mel in creating *her* site?)
