This inspiring story is from Abigail's Web site , which I originally linked to at http://www.iaf.nl/~abigail/ . A while later, I found the page had moved, to http://www.ny.fnx.com/abigail/, so I updated my link. A while later still, I found it had disappeared from there, too, but this time I couldn't find where it had gone for ages. Then it was briefly at http://cthulhu.mandrake.net/~abigail/ , but it disappeared from there, too. It turned up again, at http://www.foad.org/~abigail/ , for a while, then vanished from there!
I've given up hunting it down (the Web really is too ephemeral). Instead, because it is such a good story, I don't want to risk ever losing it, so I've mirrored it here on my own site .
