When I was a student a car ran over my only optical mouse (don't ask). I made this cobbled together mess from the pieces and used it for quite some time afterwards because I couldn't afford a new one at the time

Just a reminder to my fellow scholar.social folks: hope y'all are taking care of yourselves. Cuz academia sure as hell won't.

It's OK to be 'unproductive' sometimes. Tell that guilt to shut its yap.

Also, thanks for making this a cool place to hang.

My little #gemini browser built with #racket is shaping up well. It is still early days but it is getting better and maybe soon it will be a real browser that people can use in their day to day gemini stuff.

Thanks a ton @erkin for showing me your gopher client, that code is teaching me a lot.

The source for this experiment is at: git.sr.ht/~soapdog/fafi-browse

Do you like and ? Are you in open revolt against the devilish mainstream internet, renouncing Web 2.0 and all its works?

If you use terminal colours via internet, please hit me up, here or on the textnet. I’m trying to make a central depot for gopher and Gemini colour sites, especially any artists doing ASCII/UTF8/BIG5 &c.

What can I say; I’m a bbs kid. I like CLI text. I like pretty primary colours.

Someone should make a monospaced Fraktur font so that we can finally make a terminal capable of using the ANSI escape code 20.

What is Gemini?
""Gemini is a new application-level internet protocol for the
distribution of arbitrary files, with some special consideration for
serving a lightweight hypertext format which facilitates linking
between files.
You may think of Gemini as "the web, stripped right back to its
essence" or as "Gopher, souped up and modernised a little", depending
upon your perspective.""

Thinking about dillo and the Gemini plugin. Not used dillo for many years now...
