• Floodgap gopher

    To kick off the new forum I figured that I would drop a link to one of
    the most important Gopher sites in all of gopherspace: gopher://gopher.floodgap.com. These guys host a Gopher search engine
    called Veronica-2, originally hosted by gopher.uic.umn.edu, that caches
    up gopher sites and makes sure that they still exist periodically, and
    unlike google gives you the right gopher results the first time you
    ask. They also host several archives of gopher sites that were
    instrumental back in the day and no longer exist, including a multiple collections of public domain and shareware programs for Macintosh and
    other platforms. As icing on the cake, they offer gopher interfaces to
    some common web tasks, like checking the weather. I highly suggest you
    check them out sometime on your gopher dig!

    I need to look into Veronica-2 when I get a chance. Certainly will prove useful. :D
