[gopher] Motsognir gopher server v1.0.8

Hello list,

Today I released the latest version of the Motsognir gopher server, that 
is version 1.0.8.

Changelog:
  - Fixed execution of PHP scripts used as sub-gophermaps,
  - Sub-gophermap CGI scripts are executed regardless of their extension,
  - Dynamic gophermaps can output partial gophermap lines now (Motsognir 
will fill in lacking data like for normal gophermaps),
  - Added the PubDirList configuration list to allow serving content 
from outside the gopher root (typically via symlinks),
  - CGI/PHP scripts are executed whith their working directory set to 
either where the script is, or where the parent gophermap is (if called 
as an inline subgophermap).

Motsognir is available for download at the usual places:

http://motsognir.sourceforge.net/
gopher://gopher.viste.fr/1/projects/motsognir/

enjoy!

[gopher] Subversion Gopher Gateway

Hello everyone,

  I just put together a rather basic Gopher mole, which allows one to browse 
my public Subversion repositories, of which the code is open sourced.  I plan 
on adding additional repositories to this Subversion Gateway as time goes on.

Source code, if you want to tailor it for your own needs:
gopher://gopher.veroneau.net/0library/svn.py

One of my public repositories currently available in Gopherspace:
gopher://gopher.veroneau.net/1library/svn/cinemanick/trunk

I am planning on adding all of my Gopher related projects into a single unified 
Subversion repository, so do look forward for that being released soon.

Enjoy!

[gopher] Pascal/Delphi Gopher Unit/Library

Hello everyone!

  Tonight I just started work on a Pascal/Delphi Unit which can be placed into 
any Pascal/Delphi application to immediately enable gopher support!

  I am building it in FreePascal, which claims compatibility with the Delphi 
programming language.  I choose to build a Pascal unit for Gopher, as Pascal 
is a very very incredibly cross-platform language, and is easier to work with 
and compile than say the GCC toolkit.  For example, the same .pas file should 
easily compile on Linux, Windows, Classic Mac, MS-DOS/FreeDOS, OS X, Nintendo 
Wii, Nintendo DS, Gameboy Advanced(although no networking), and even PalmOS!  
So having a native Pascal Unit for Gopher is the ultimate choice to have 
gopher support on as many platforms as you could imagine.

  Of course, my work will be saved into my gopherspace, as all my other gopher 
related libraries are: 
gopher://gopher.veroneau.net/0library/PascalGopher/gopher.pas

  All you need is a copy of FreePascal for whatever OS you are on to play 
around: http://www.freepascal.org/

  FreePascal even brought back classic 16-bit DOS support in their recent 
release!  So we can even build a gopher client for really old 286 machines 
with a 16-bit networking stack!  Wow!  Talk about being able to make gopher 
reach further than ever before.

  Once you have the gopher.pas downloaded somewhere, just run: fpc gopher.pas

  This will create gopher.ppu, and a binary library file, like gopher.o which 
the linker will link your own code against.

Re: [gopher] Gopherplus.org management

I am still new to gopher, so my question may or may not make sense: isn't "Gopherplus" different to "Gopher"?

I read somewhere that Gopher+ is more specific to some additions that were made to the protocol.

The command line client I am using in Linux shows "non gopher+" next to the first link that appears when I
start the application, which takes me to the floodgap gopher server.

Thank you in advance for the info.

[gopher] Gopherplus.org management

Many thanks for your offerings of hosting gopherplus.org! However it not a
technical support I am requesting: I can host this Internet site on my own
home server (both for 70 and 80) like I do it for my domain oceamer.com.
Today, gopherplus.org is hosted on a commercial web site provider that
already mirror my home server under the domain oceamer.fr. (yes, only on
port 80!) for a cheep price. This is to prevent power or ADSL outage since I
moved last year from a big city into a small village.

My idea for gopherplus.org is to do something like these planet websites
using RSS/ATOM feeds to aggregate posts from several personal weblogs. I am
looking for somebody fluent in English to receive voluntary posts from
Gopher users, edit these texts (mistakes, typos…) and moderate them if
necessary. An other difficulty is about clock time: we are all living all
around the planet, we need some rest, so this task can’t be distributed
among several editors living in different time zones.

As the goal of this new Internet site is to inform on a large scale people
about Gopher, it is absolutely necessary to be on the port 80; it is
necessary too to have a Gopher version of that website as a proof of
concept. More, I think it is important that the port 80 version of this site
should look like any mainstream websites. (Using graphical chart like those
websites owned by geeks or activists could ruin our credibility!)

Today, gopherplus.org is a simple static website powered by a soft I wrote.
My blog engine is a replacement of Nanoblogger blog engine wrote in Bash. I
did, in the a past, a converter (nb2gopher) to provide Gopher menus
(translating HTML posts into plain text using the “dump” option of Lynx)
from Nanoblogger. For the present time, I am rewriting fBlog because Fortran
programming is in strong progress. I plan, in the future, to have fBlog
playing 70 port. This is a huge task because I want to code everything by

[gopher] Gopherplus.org purchased

As it had been said on this list, gopher users are going to be in
competition with Go, a new programming language. Go programmers already use
the gopher mascot and the word  "gopher"! Soon the word "gopher" will rely
only to  Go and not anymore to our favourite Internet protocol.

It is a fact that we, users of Gopher protocol, are not yet organized as the
World Wide Web consortium (W3C) is. So I take the initiative to preserve our
interests by launching an Internet site devoted to the promotion of Gopher
protocol in the same way than W3C does.

As some of you had maybe did it, I searched a vacant domain name relying to
the word "gopher". I didn’t found nothing available. And truly, it is
difficult to preserve the property of a word referring to an animal (or
something that belong to an well known major actor of Internet).  Extending
my search around the word "gopher+" I found a web site (gopherplus.com) that
sell a soft/diet drink named Gopher+!

Fortunately, the domain “gopherplus.org” didn’t exist.  I purchased it and 
set immediately a web page to make this new domain visible.

And now what to do with that? Honesty, my English is ridiculous (it is not
my mother tong) and I am unable to publish in this language. Hence, I do
this proposal:

  1. Any person who want to publish a blog post on this new website can send
me by mail the article.
  2. Any persons having a fixed IP address and interested to accept the duty
of web-master and gopher-master, can contact me. I will modify the DNS
accordingly. (For both items, my mail address is that one in the Whois
database for gopherplus.org domain.)
  3. In the future, if an international organization for the Gopher protocol
(similar to the W3C) is launched, I hereby declare to donate my domain to it.

[gopher] Commandline WebRTC client

Greetings.

Thanks for the the offering to organise and host the gophercon.

As a side note: WebRTC is now built into bulky RAM‐eating software. Does
anyone know of some small commandline implementation which could be eas‐
ily  connected  to  some  smaller text browser like lynx? If not, then I
will have to look at the specs to have it implemented.

Sincerely,

Christoph Lohmann

At least here in Belgium calling to the US is not expensive. It is even 
- annoyingly - in many cases cheaper to call the US then your neighbor 
when you have on the TV-internet-phone packs of one of the main providers.

And even so; a voip account is easy created. Then it is free or so 
ridicules cheap it is virtual free of charge.

Example of very cheap voip provider; https://www.freevoipdeal.com

If you have a router/modem from your ISP, even if you do not have fix 
phone service, there is a good change the device has a build in ATA. See 
of there are RJ11 plugs on the device, then you know.

ATA is Voip to analog telephone service function. Many devices support 
at least 2 independent voip profiles. So even if you have fix phone 
service from your ISP you can add one yourself.

You can use the router of your ISP and define maybe your own voip 
connection. You only need to get a classic analog telephone.

Great.

already existed. It is about a program language.

And by "teleconference" do we mean we'll dial in, video conference in, etc?

No promises on Jason Scott, but I am hopeful.
