The Mariah Carey Newsgroup FAQ


Issue #039 (9th April 2001)- The Welcome To Virgin Edition

This FAQ is quite out of date. I am hoping to review the information and create a new version in the coming months.—Archer Nov '03

The maintenance of this FAQ is a non-profit project of Kasoft Typesetting, a division of Kasoft Software, Australia. The editor and author, Kade "Archer" Hansson, can be reached by e-mail at Corrections, additions and all forms of feedback are encouraged.

Copyright in this document is retained by the author, and it may not be adapted or offered for sale or hire, in whole or in part, without prior arrangement with Kade Hansson.

An extensive hypertext version of this document (XHTML, suitable for most contemporary browsers) is available on the web at:

Note that if you are reading this text on a newsgroup or an FAQ archive, there may be a significant lag time before the hypertext version is updated to reflect the changes in the document you are now reading. That is, you could be seeing the previous month's version if you follow this link. All previous mirrors of the hypertext version are outdated, so this address is to be preferred over any others you may have.

For those who prefer plain text, or the protocol FTP, the MIT archive has up-to-data copies of all FAQs in textual form on their FTP service. This FAQ is in five parts that can be downloaded from the directory:

For faster access, and to reduce the burden on the main service, I would recommend that you seek out mirrors of the MIT site, which can be readily found all over the world.

The hypertext version of this FAQ includes local links to full lyrics and cover thumbnails, as well as selected articles and photographs.

New readers should read the general section first, and then to browse through the music, movie, personal information and miscellaneous sections. People with a strong interest in Mariah Carey may like to browse the fan section, to find out about fan clubs and collectables. Regular computer users may also be interested in the technical section.

At the end of the FAQ I give a selected bibliography. I also list some articles about Mariah and interviews she has done.

See question G3 for recent developments, including updates on Mariah's move from Columbia to Virgin and the upcoming movie and soundtrack All That Glitters.
