# Look at the Republic // 19-1-31
Although I knew since its inception about [The Republic's] existence,
I never really visited it. There's quite some interesting stuff in there!
leeb has announced [Project Lightsabre] with the aim of building a
gopher client in COBOL -- how cool is that! Good luck, and keep us posted!
[katolaz] discusses a lot of Unix tools, and reminds me of the
"old dog, new tricks" saying.. I already learnt some stuff I never heard
about, and am looking forward to more!
> I cannot guarantee that any of the stuff I will put here

Oh but yes, it will!
[cleber] brings us not just interesting ideas about programming,
but a refreshing take on Brazil from an insider viewpoint
complementing external and mainstream media.
