[gopher] Questions about the UMN gopher client

Hi,

I am using the UMN gopher client that comes with Debian, Raspbian and Lubuntu distros and tried to contact the email address it shows on its help page (gopher-WrTMxSeDnuhg9hUCZPvPmw@public.gmane.org) but it is bouncing my messages. I just have a question about the "Connect to a new Gopher Server" window's Selector fiel d, since it won't connect me to any gopher server unless I leave blank that window. For example, if I try to connect directly to the following link:


The "Connect to a new Gopher Server" window will take me to that server if I leave Selector blank, but if I want to go directly to the mentioned document it will not connect me but will tell me that the resource can not be found. I tried by filling out Selector with /0/gopher/relevance.txt  or  0/gopher/relevance.txt  or  /gopher/relevance.txt and other combinations without success.

I find this old client very interesting and practical for the command line, but since very few people talk about it in this list I was even wondering if the UMN gopher  client is still maintained today.

Thank you in advance for any info.

Regards,

Héctor.

[gopher] fld.gp: now shorten those Gopher URLs for social media

It's time we had a shortener for Gopher links, and this one is designed
so that the same resource, no matter if Gopher and HTTP, will get you to
the right place. Perfect for social media that has no idea what a Gopher
link is and the clueless people who run those sites.

Try it out on itself:

	gopher://fld.gp/1j/p

AND

	http://fld.gp/1j/p

fld.gp links may be considered permanent, but see the ToS.

Re: [gopher] gopher server security. WAS: gopher hosting

Long time lurker here. Though I do appreciate the work you all do to keep gopher going.

I am thinking of running a gopher server on a VPS I have with Linode.

I wanted to gauge all your guy's opinions about how secure it would be to host a gopher server on a VPS that also had web sites.  What I am getting at is do you think modern gopher servers are secure enough or should I isolate it to its own VPS?  I understand nothings truly secure,  I have a firewall set up, I monitor traffic and the like.  Just general thoughts you might want to share.


Warmest regards,



J. R. Johnstone

Agreed.  I personally use both sdfeu.org and my own gopher server which is running pygopherd on a raspbery pi.  Super simple to set up and the pi can handle the load with ease.

I hadn't seen an announcement on this, but I wanted to note that it shouldn't
be named Overbite Android, since I still do intend(tm) to do further work
on it on the future once I actually have free cycles.

[gopher] New Gopher Client for Windows

Hi Guys,

Long time Gopher lurker here.  I’ve finally got around to finishing up my 
Gopher Client for Windows. It’s not quite ready for release, but it’s 
almost done. I hope to have a downloadable copy in a couple of weeks.

As a teaser for the final thing, here's a screenshot of it in action, let 
me know what you think?

http://www.weegeeks.com/upload/Jar-Gopher-Browser-Full-Screenshots.jpg

I'm also working on a Windows Service based Gopher server, but that's 
really not finished yet.

Totally interested in your thoughts!

Cheers,

Matt Owen [Jaruzel]

[gopher] motsognir UserDir=

I have the line UserDir=/home/%s/public_gopher/ in my motsognir.conf file, and
motsognir running as a daemon on ubuntu 15.x under xinetd. I have the directory
public_gopher in my /home/username

directory and no matter what I try I can't get naught but an error (Forbidden!)
when trying to go to it with the link:
gopher://gopher.mydomain.tld/1/users/myusername or without the /1 or using
/home/ or anything. What have I done wrong? Thanks.

[gopher] posts getting stuck in the moderation queue?

I've tried posting to this list a handful of times.  I always end up in
the moderation queue and never get out of it ... what's up with that?

Hey Kevin, thanks for stepping up to maintain the fork in the Google 
Play store, but in keeping with the spirit of FOSS, please do also make 
it available at fdroid.org as well :)

[gopher] BSD Talk 'Down the Gopher Hole'

http://bsdtalk.blogspot.com/2016/04/bsdtalk264-down-gopher-hole.html

Not an interview, just a general introduction to Gopher by the creator                                                                            
of the BSD Talk podcast.  The second half is the audio from an interview
of the developers of Gopher at University of Minnesota.
