No, I didn't see that post.
  I have been in touch with John Goerzen, and just like Cameron Kaiser and his 
FloodGap, I am not sure that hosting the archive would be a good thing for 
  Like I suggested to Mr. Goerzen, I think the ideal solution would be to set 
up a dedicated Gopher Server just for, and ONLY for, this static archive.  Due 
to the fact that this archive is really just the equivalent of a "backup tape", 
the requirements for a Server would be minimal (persons would not access this 
archive very often because the original source Servers would always be more up 
to date, and probably on a faster internet connections as well).  
  I could easily see using an obsolete PC with a 60-80 Gb hard drive (an old 
Pentium 3 should be quite sufficient), on an inexpensive (i.e. slow) Internet 
connection.  I would also recommend that the Veronica-2 index on FloodGap NOT 
index this server, as persons should always be going to the original source 
Servers first (this server should appear in the FloodGap "all the worlds Gopher 
holes" list though).

up a dedicated server for the gopher archives etc?
