 omg, this is *great*.
 random, otherwise entirely usable web browsers implementing gopher
(since it is really very very simple to implement) - even if it is for
an april 1st few hour joke hacking run, it can only further the cause.

Yup, I thought it was fabulous also. The support is unadorned, but hey,
it works (and they fixed some of the bugs in their previous older support).
Good news for people who like WebKit, since I think this is the only WebKit
browser other than Konqueror (...? is it WebKit now?) that has Gopher support
at all, and the only one out of the box.

New Gopher Server (an April Fools' Day joke, but still, it exists)

Dear everyone,

The SRCF--a student-run society at Cambridge University which
provides a linux shell and related services to students--has set up a
new gopher server at <gopher://gopher.srcf.ucam.org/≥. I think they are
running pygopherd.

Of course, this being 1iv2009, they are redirecting their main
webpage <http://www.srcf.ucam.org> to the gopherspace...but hopefully
they will keep the server once we get past 12BST (when these jokes
traditionally end in the UK).

A nice touch is that their NoMachine java applet is also being served
on gopher (though via HTML).

Best wishes,

Jacob

I'm pretty sure they intend to -- I spoke with Malcolm a couple weeks ago
when they submitted their server to the "new" list.

The OmniWeb traffic is massive. helsinki is keeping up with it, but people
can expect lots of fascinated people today. The only problem is I'm getting
quite a few joke server reports and I don't want to pollute Veronica with
temporary selectors. And it's only 5:40am Pacific!

SunOS(Solaris 2.5) Gopher Daemon

Okay so it's taken me a few weeks but I got this old 1995 Sparcstation
up and running. Anyone know where I can get an old Solaris Gopher
server program.
Also, it'll need to be accessible via http, as gopher:// is blocked
for me up here at work.

What if you run the gopher server on port 80?

UMN gopherd would compile on Solaris, but the security holes are a problem.
An old version of Perl should build on it though (if you can build 5.00504,
that will run Bucktooth).
