the gopher protocol was created in 1991. it didn't survive long due to draconic licensing.

we're trying to keep this cool corner of the web alive.

# user gopher

main gopher page: gopher:// serves user gopherholes from your ~/public_gopher directory.

if a file called gophermap exists in the directory you're currently browsing to in gopher, it will get processed and displayed.
see this example for more information on file types and special chars.

browse gophersites

if you're currently connected from a shell, you can use the lynx browser.
  lynx gopher://

if you want to access the gophersite in your public_gopher dir, use the following link structure:   gopher://

otherwise, you can use our http proxy to browse the gophernet.
