This page is dedicated to The Electronic Money Mill. The Electronic Money Mill is a novel written and first published in the middle of the 1990’s. This site is an effort to keep the novel alive and even get some more attention towards it. The original publication can be found at the WayBackMachine. The archive of the WayBackMachine is the source for this page as well.
With new technology around it seemed feasable to republish the 180 pages long novel in a modern way.
When you look closely at the original introduction the orignal author states the following.
The book is available on-line for free. You may download the book from this site and you may distribute it freely. All we ask is that you not modify the content in any way and that, in particular, the cover page be included with all distributions. Furthermore, you must not profit from distribution of this book. All rights are reserved. Published here on the Web, March 1998.
Now you might ask why are there ads. The ads cover the cost of hosting and possibly ensure that this redistribution not shares the same fortune as the original publication.
Why did I choose to republish the book
While browsing the web like I do regularly I found a stackoverflow question about private key management. The accepted answer talked about “The Electronic Money Mill” and so my journey began.
Since the link in the origianl answer greeted the visitor with an Error 404, I took closer look at the comments where I found the link to the WayBackMachine.
It’s great to have an archive but some pieces are missing.
In Chapter 18 there is an image that could not be restored using the WayBackMachine. Some of the images could be extracted from the archived PDF. If you come accross any missing piece and happen to find it or if you’re the original author of the novel feel free to contact me.
