Welcome to the personal homepage of Russell W. Behne Sr.
Self-hosted on my home Linux box
Until further notice the eBook Library server and the FTP server are discontinued.
We have frequent power outages here in the Philippines that range from
1 minute to 12 hours, and they happen unexpectedly, so if this and
the other servers hosted here (Library, Genealogy, Gopher, FTP, etc.,) aren't available it
means I have no power. Check back hourly.
If this server is up, but others (the library or
genealogy server) are down, it's because I'm forced to manually
restart those other servers after a power outage, and haven't noticed they're down yet,
(Text or Viber me if you're impatient). I'm working on a respawning script to keep
them up & running automatically, but so far it won't work right.
Your thanks: If you
appreciate all the unpaid labor I'm going through to provide
educational resources then please say so on my FB page or by PM.
Let me know what you think.
(As always, money donations are always welcome!)
Gopher servers were what we had before there were any web pages. Primitive by modern web page standards (no images, only text), but amazingly fast text file transfers! Still great for sharing plain text files. And yes, images can be provided, they just have to be listed in a menu so the user can select one to view.
NOTE: To access the gopher protocol you must use a dedicated gopher client or a web browser that supports it, (like Lynx for Windows). Firefox used to recognise the gopher protocol, and you can add gopher capability back into Firefox using this addon: OverbiteFF. Add OverbiteFF to your Firefox and you'll be able to reach GopherSpace with ease! (Works on Android too!)
Other (off-site) Gopher resources can be found here: (HEY, YOU! Read this: These are real gopher links, so you have to read and follow the NOTE in the preceeding paragraph before you can follow these gopher links!)
