I'm working on setting up what I hope will be a unique resource for retro computer users: a Gopher server loaded up with the best software and info for those machines that I can get my hands on. I've already started to gather software and info for IBM compatible systems and suggestions for what to add next are always welcome. I'm particualrly interested in adding tools for accessing Telnet BBSes on older systems and on putting together a list of cool boards that have something special to offer retro system users.
Very cool! This is quite relevant to my interests ;) I plan on creating a in-BBS Gopher browser for ENiGMA 1/2 in the near future -- I'd love to hook this up. Also, I've been working on building a huge retro archive over on Xibalba BBS. Please feel free to come snag stuff (it's approx 150 GB and growing quickly with at least another 200 GB that I simply need to import). ...lots of retro programming / hardware books, mags (computers/gaming), utilities, DOS games, etc. The whole point is to get this stuff in a position it doesn't disappear forever, so def snag some and host it on Gopher as well!
Check it out at retrostar.bbs.io:70 The server speaks both native
Gopher and HTTP, so it should be simple to connect. Feedback and suggestions are VERY welcome.
