I like this…no, I kind of love it. This is a working gopher server over http.

Floodgap.gopher.com

Back in the early days, gopher was a text-based competing protocol to the World Wide Web and http. As the Web grew in adoption, gopher servers died out. This server at floodgap is holding onto some history.

If you have automatic updating turned on in Google Chrome, and you find that your install is not quite right - wherein you still have your bookmarks and such, but the install just seems to have limited memory, refuses to show Chrome settings and/or goes directly to the AW SNAP! view.

Feel free to skip the usual troubleshooting steps and uninstall then download the new Chrome package. This worked for me on OS X. I have to think that the recent Chrome update either was b0rked or I had an incompatible file somewhere on my system.
