I’ve been rather bad at getting on things, my server Geomyidae was at the end of it’s life span and it was time to get the VM shutdown.
To be fair, I hadn’t done many updates to gopher.is for some time at this point and the content was getting old. The other problem with this is that it’s not on the same machine as I run my or any of the other sites where I have a copy of installed.
En brief, moving content is time consuming nonsense that makes me less likely to actually do a thing, then I neglect that thing. This is why I’ve made a bigger effort to integrate things, like the BBS with CommunityWare.ca, local and external NNTP servers on Leafnode, etc.
Then I was struck by lightening, I watched a video about , I tried a few servers to get up and running, didn’t really feel them much or just didn’t get them working.
Until that is got on my radar, you see it uses the existing structure and content from , which when you’re on the market for a new gopher server is just the right thing.
So I got this bad boy running and oh boy does it work, I like the feel a bit better of and as I dip my fingers more in to , I actually quite like it. In fact, I seem to like it so much that I went and found gopher.is a friend at gemini.is.
