As a regular user of gopher, including for Dros info at Indiana U, and a
new user for AtDB's gopher, I agree with Don Gilbert that gopher is a
no-fuss way of getting info without having to brave, as he says, the glitz
and delays the internet presents these days, particularly for those of us
that don't have ready access to the internet on their older, slower
terminals. If it's not too much effort to maintain AtDB's gopher, I for
one would like to see it stay.
