A native Win32 client for Gopher can be found here:
  If you are running Internet Exploerer 6, you can surf Gopherspace after 
adding one line to your Registry:
  "EnableGopher" =dword: 00000001
An excellent resource for those new to Gopher is the "Begin_Here" Gopher link:

I'm quite new to gopherspace and don't have a running gopher server 
(though had one pygopherd for a while as a proof-of-concept). I like the 
clean look nad navigation system it provides as I'm not a big fan of 
modern webpages which often look like a product of sick imagination and 
they hog the system with complex propertiary software

As I'm fond of "ancient" technology I used to spend days on IRC and make 
Texinfo documentation (just for kicks) which is quite similiar in 
presentation (tree-alike navigation, fixed text. It is the content that 
matters, just like in the Open Directory Project (blame stegozor for 
having me here).

Well anyway, I've submitted the Polish i18n for OverbiteFF (apart from 
.properties files I've modified the chrome manifest file and 
install.rdf; imagine I had no prior experience with XPIs) which looks 
promising. Unfortunately I can't browse gopher:// directly from my PC, 
while running Windows XP, because it ends on instant boot. So I use 
Floodgap Gopher Proxy from Opera and the OverbiteFF extension runs on 
Firefox which is installed under the Virtual PC machine ;-P

I tried to post here through Gmane, but the message got stuck somewhere, 
so I post directly to the list. That's all for now. Cheers !
