The week before last I had the opportunity to deliver a "flash talk" at a work meetup. I opted to present a summary of what I've learned while adding support for Finger and Gopher protocols to the WordPress installation that powers (I also hinted at the fact that I already added Gemini and Spring '83 support, and I'm looking at other protocols).

The presentation is a shortened, Automattic-centric version of a talk I'll be delivering at Oxford Geek Nights tomorrow. If you're in or around Jericho, Oxford tomorrow, come say hi!

I'm finally ready to unveil my new weird software project that I've been working on: #Cosmarmot, a #Gopher to #Gemini gateway. I've got a public instance running at gopher:// Screenshots below in TurboGopher on #MacOS System 7.5, and in #Bombadillo in #CoolRetroTerm (since I can't take a real screenshot on my VT420).

Useful (?) for #Retrocomputing: if your old computer will run a Gopher client, but doesn't have the oomph to do the TLS a Gemini client needs, point it at Cosmarmot and explore Geminispace.

Lagrange is so good, how exciting! I wish I could browse html/http with it because it's so fast and clean!

Seriously, if you see this post and aren't checking out #Gemini or #Gopher go give Lagrange a try! The web is text (and fun) again!

(Looks nice. Never been on this gopher thingy.)

Do you like #gopher and #gemini? Are you in open revolt against the devilish mainstream internet, renouncing Web 2.0 and all its works?

If you use terminal colours via internet, please hit me up, here or on the textnet. I’m trying to make a central depot for gopher and Gemini colour sites, especially any artists doing ASCII/UTF8/BIG5 &c.


What can I say; I’m a bbs kid. I like CLI text. I like pretty primary colours.

Hi - I'm new. I used to run a pleroma instance a couple of years back, and I have some presence on port-70 # and now port-1965 # where I'm writing at gemini://

My dayjob is in front-end Web tech but I'm more interested in unix-derivative computing, the command line, sustainable/solarpunk tech. I'm also into cycling, trekking & camping, urban gardening, vinyl audio (dub, electronica, lo-fi hip-hop), communisation theory/praxis. Favourite shape: hexagon.

rrrrrreally shoulda hashtagged #gopher too. #gemini shows up for many other things too. far fewer instances of off-topic noise with #gopher.
