Dear Dan (and other Gopher_gurus)

I run the unix_gopher_client version 1.12, I have the "s" function,
but I do get those escape_reverse_video characters in my saved file.
They are a real nuissance ...  Did I do something wrong when I
compiled gopher? (this is on a Sparc2, running SunOS 4.1.2, olwm 3.0)

While we are on the subject ... if you don't have a Gopher client
installed on your machine .... GET IT!!!!  It comes in all flavors,
Unix, VMS, Mac and PC (and as Dan was saying ... they each have little
quircks ;-)

You cannot do sequence analysis/molecular biology without it!  It is
an _indispensible tool_.

It goes without saying that we _all_ owe *very* much to Dan and Don
and the _many_ others who manage the many bio_gopher wholes (servers)
world wide.

Thank you very much!
