I noticed recently that Gopher directories (Type 1) are cutting off
text at a width of 66 characters (74 if you count the Type discriptors).
This seems to be something new and I'm wondering if the settings
could be reverted to whatever it used to be (80? maybe it wasn't
limited at all).
For illustration one can compare gopher directories on SDF.org to
tilde.institute, both which use Gophericus:
I'm not seeing any truncation on Type 0 pages, just the "info"
(Type i) content of gophermap files seems to be affected.
Perhaps there's something I could tweak in my gophermap files;
please let me know if there is.
Just wondering whether it'd be possible to install the 7.1 sources
in /usr/src (both src.tar.gz and sys.tar.gz)? It'd be nice to have
the source of the system available for perusal, and it'll (mostly?)
avoid multiple user copies. (If we had both 7.1 and -current,
that'd be insanely awesome!)
It's been a while since I last used UNIX,
especially on a tilde, and realised that I
needed a primer to refresh myself on a load
of basic stuff that I'd forgotten how to do.
I know you could probably just use a standard
UNIX user manual, but there's a lot of minutiae
that you can't do on a pubnix that most people
do on reflex on a personal machine, and some
parts of the system is just generally poorly
documented online. (not on our part)
So, getting to my actual point: do we have a
centralised tilde/pubnix primer for newbies
and the like? Or can we point users to a
similar document elsewhere? Just a
