I heartily savour the use of colour at Dock Masters 2020 compo. The ambient light changes colour when the clock runs out. This avoids a lot of the nonsense with audio buzzers which climbers may tune out in concentration, and is sensorially far more charming. Nice vivid hue but darkish shades. Delicious.
I’m enjoying Bombadillo. I especially appreciate it for supporting #GopherColour escapes, apparently in all three protocols. My quibbles: I would prefer to use the arrow keys for moving around. And I’d rather the link numbers not need so many strokes. What can I say; I’m a pick / lynx muggle. But fun all in all, especially for seamless Gemini browsing.
So going forward, it probably is good form to make #Gopher maps select for regular or colour. I shall try! https://mastodon.sdf.org/media/D4rLeijfghFBJWcmbw0
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
@solderpunk makes the awesome #VF-1 #Gopher client.
I asked for ANSI colour escape code support on the Gopher email list a while ago and was poopooed by most...
The purists judged it couldn’t be done - that such a notion was an abomination. A heresy! 😥
But he did it; thanks to Solderpunk’s VF-1, #GopherColour is alive!
This is seriously the best phlog reader out there, too. Try it!
