GopherBook is 15

Paul, · Categories: General

Not that you would be using it these days, but Kevin Gamiel reminds me that he created and released GopherBook 15 years ago today! What was Giopher Book? A ToolBook-based Gopher Client for WinSock that’s still available for download here.

    Ha I am surprised there are still gopher servers still around. I remember how cool I thought they were at the time.
    I suppose they could still be useful for lightweight clients, such as phones or watches. In fact, you can still get the local weather via gopher!
