*1ec5.org is currently under construction.* I expect to be done with it by June.
In the meantime, my BBS-based e-zine is being mirrored at:
<telnet://notes.1ec5.org:80>.

DID YOU KNOW?
U+1EC5 is the hexadecimal number that represents a lowercase 'e' with a
circumflex and tilde on top? Here's how it looks in your terminal: "сЛ�". If
that didn't come out looking somewhat like a lowercase 'e' for you, you
might need to upgrade to the latest decade.
