[gopher] "push to Veronica"

One problem we have had is new sites getting exposure to Veronica-2, which is
somewhat solved by the new sites seed.

However, a related problem that is not solved is getting the robot to look
again when you've changed something.

I'm considering an idea to add an entry to the robot's investigation
database so that it goes and looks on demand. You would provide a URL and a
display string, and it would only accept menus, not documents. Thoughts?

Re: [gopher] "push to Veronica"


Is there an Jughead type of local index that could do this from a client
perspective?

That way, when something is changed in the Jughead database, it knows to
contact Veronica/Vishnu.

That might alleviate the need for someone to manually address this issue
everytime (especially in a hosted environment, like say, SDF, etc.,),
yet Veronica would be notified of the changes regardless on a schedule.

I was looking at this a while back, and wondering how it might be
integrated with Veronica/Vishnu in just such a way so that Veronica
doesn't have to spider everything in gopher space over and over again:

http://www.nongnu.org/jugtail/veronica.ctl.html

That having been said, an interface just as you suggest would also be
desirable, since not everyone would be installing a local indexer, and
if, for no other reason, to let Veronica know that a new gopherhole has
been dug.

Dunno, just reaching here, but seeking with a search service is very
important, while blindly burrowing hoping to stumble across what you're
looking for is not often that fruitful.

[gopher] Gopher-centric memoir by R. Alberti

The link below was posted on SDF.org's bboard.  It's a paper/memoir by
Robert Al berti that discusses "The Rise and Fall of Gopher" based on his
experiences at the U o f MN.  Pretty interesting read and it has some
great graphics, including a pic of Adam Curry of MTV fame wearing a Gopher
T-shirt (someone should definitely print up some of
 those for people on this list!).

Robert Alberti's paper on  scribd.com:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/56817068/PIL3254-Internet-Gopher-PPL-Alberti

Why he didn't make it available on his SDF gopherspace I've no clue, but
I took the liberty of making it available in both PDF and plain text:

gopher://jgw.mdns.org/0/REFS/56817068-PIL3254-Internet-Gopher-PPL-Alberti.pdf
gopher://jgw.mdns.org/0/REFS/56817068-PIL3254-Internet-Gopher-PPL-Alberti.txt

I sent the link to Adam on Twitter. He retweeted it; I bet he got a kick
out of it.

Nice!

This is definitely a document to preserve.

The selector "0" is wrong about the URI concerning the PDF to download! It
should be "9":

[gopher] deep thoughts with Jack Handy^W^WTwitter

Here are some ideas from a random guy on Twitter (on this list?) that showed
up in my background search on gopherspace.

<hahnrobert> The fact that Gopher is a read-only protocol annoys me a bit tho. Wish I could upload
documents. Also wish I could run it under SSL.
<hahnrobert> Idea: if I had a Gopher client that was also a server, and I could somehow tell another server
where my doc was, it could async pull & host

A TLS-enabled gopher has been kicked around before. But the second idea is
also quite interesting, if the security concerns were addressed.

[gopher] gophers

Hello,

the gmane search seems to not work right now or is overloaded, so
I have to ask here.

Was there any effort in the past to register a »gophers« port at
IANA[0][1]?

Sincerely,

Christoph Lohmann

As in gopher over TLS/SSL? Not that I'm aware of ...

yes, exactly.

Such a defined port would be useful. Sad that I don't have the
time to go through the bureaucracy … :(
