Once again, We've fired up our gopher services, following the meltdown a few years back of our old IIS 2.0 box.

Feel free to visit our furry little rodent at gopher://gopher.NorthTech.US

We have a rather large library of free software that you prolly can't find easily, like, Ultrix, BSD2.x, Unix 7th Edition, Coherent, many emulators (So you don't have to buy a VAX or PDP-11 on eBay), etc.

Oh, it doesn't resolve for you? We can fix that. Read on...

So You Want to Surf Gopherspace

Anyone remember the Gopher protocol? I don't---at least, I don't remember it at its height. I first came across gopher in 1999, but only really started exploring it about five years ago, well after most nodes had been shuttered and their content moved to http. But even in its reduced form, there was a charm about gopher that drew me in, and which has taken root. And so, every so often, I wander through gopherspace, just to see what might be new, or old, or forgotten, or simply to enjoy the peace...
