Welcome to my gopherhole
august 20th, 2019
This is the first  post on my new phlog. Some days ago  I created my new
public gopher server. The installation  of Gophernicus on my new virtual
server went pretty smooth.
I have to admit that I haven't  used gopher for quite a while. The first
time I  remember was me  looking for drivers for  a graphics card  on my
OS/2 box back in 1995.  Unfornunately,  I can't remember the name of the
gopher  client,  but I  recall  that  one  of  the servers  belonged  to
IBM. Those were the days!
Fast  forward almost  25 years.  The  web has  become a  place of  total
surveillance.  After browsing  gopher pages and reading  all the amusing
phlogs  for  some  days,  I  decided  that  it's  about  time  for  some
javascript,  css  and  ad-tracking  detox,  so  I  created  this  little
gopherhole. I hope  that I will find  the time to make  some old content
available here as well.
I've always been attracted to  alternative technologies, and Gopher fits
perfectly!  Most  of  my  work  days,  I  extensivly  use  command  line
tools. Not sure about my workflow  for Gopher yet, so I'm playing around
with some of  the available tools. 'burrow' seems quite  nice, though it
might need some hacking to suit my needs.
Anyway,  if  you  have  any  comments,  drop me  a  line  at  "jan  [at]
