(been sort of liking the idea of bringing back #Gopher. Remember Gopher, anyone?)

@bortzmeyer #gopher server? Où ça? Bon, sur suse, je fais zypper se gopher et j'ai un "not found". Puis mozilla me renvoie vers le moteur de recherche :(

"The team, in 36-hour sessions fueled by beer, pizza, and speed metal, finished writing Gopher in about three weeks. They installed the first computer running a Gopher server — a Mac SE/30, a little droid of a computer with an iPad-size monitor built in — in a narrow hallway between their offices and the showroom, in a closet with metal shelves. It became known as the Mother Gopher."

And now, for something completely different... I wonder how many of you still remember Gopher?

I finally migrated an old project on ist new server, and gopher://port70.ch is now online and should be more stable than last year.

Yes, you'll need Lynx or Firefox + OverbiteFF add-on to visit it...

We're not ready to open to the public, yet, but if having your own Gopherhole takes your fancy, just ping me and I'll get back in touch!

🇫🇷 Rien à voir, mais je me demande combien d'entre vous se rappellent de Gopher?

J'ai enfin migré un ancien projet sur son nouveau serveur, et gopher://port70.ch est à présent atteignable de manière plus fiable que l'an passé.

Oui, vous aurez besoin de Lynx ou de Firefox avec add-on OverbiteFF pour le visiter...

Pas encore ouvert au public, mais si avoir votre propre Gopherhole vous tente, envoyez-moi un ping et je vous recontacterai!

WTF supports playing music from FUCKING !? o_O

In the early 90s, when I exhausted the handful of dial-up BBSes that were local to me in rural #Vermont, I somehow discovered a dial-up library system at a local college that ran #Gopher and #Telnet. From there I found Diku #MUD, perl #MUSH and #ISCABBS. These were my first online communities and I still know people I met in them. The web barely existed and most users were academics and hobbyists, not corporations.

#Mastodon reminds me of those times, before AOL and #dotcoms screwed it all up.
