If I made any Debian assumptions in Gnopher, please tell me. (But I guess
you are referring to the lack of apt-get and the like?) Anyway, I'm
impressed that you're willing to go through so much pain to install my li'l
hack! `:-]

I'm glad to hear (from you, but also from other sources) that installation
eventually worked out and that it's running, and all (whoa, do I sound like
a professional or what? :-)

Currently not available through both, at least for me (connection refused).
Which kindly reminds me that Gnopher currently doesn't handle unavailable
severs correctly %)

Acnyway, I'd love to see your stuff so I'd appreciate it if you could
resolve this problem. BTW, be sure to make a statement on a) licencing in
general and b) if this theme may be part of the Gnopher distro and web
site. It's not like I hire lawyers or so, it's just that I don't ever want
to do that in the first place :-)

I don't completely follow the idea, and I didn't follow the discussion
either, sorry. Is this documented? And is it useful considering the fact
that other servers don't (have to) do it as well? No need to re-start the
whole thread, just give me the conclusions :-)
