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...

URI Passing in Elinks

Posted 07-30-2010 at 02:45 PM by uxrs75
Tags browser, cli, elinks

Programmes: elinks

Next, add some MIME types to elinks.conf.

Code:
set mime.extension.jpg="image/jpeg"
set mime.extension.jpeg="image/jpeg"
set mime.extension.png="image/png"
set mime.extension.gif="image/gif"

Once, not so long ago, I actually had a website---but it ran into some trouble: suspensions. It seems I had some stuff that the hosts (which were free, so I can't complain to much---and I'm not so much complaining as providing back story) didn't like (as far as I've been able to determine, they didn't like my how-to for archiving VHS cassettes to DVD), and thus my site kept getting suspended.

It was irritating, but it did get me thinking, for the site also had a several pages of...
