Used Gopher for the first time the other day


Hi all,

So yeah, I’m real late on this trend. But I thought it was interesting that this technology is still available if you wanted to use it badly enough.

When I first got on the Internet, it was circa 1994/95, and it was at the cusp of the emerging web as we *basically* know it today (obviously things have come a long way). I knew about Gopher back then, but I don’t think I ever tried it out. Or, maybe I did and I just don’t remember.

But as the screen shot below shows, it still exists! Hey, it’s fast, and something tells me not as strewn with ads everywhere.
