    Hi! Right now I am working on a homebrew to connect to the Gopher protocol on 3DS.
    This is just a little side project and will be helpful for exploring Gopher on the go.
    If anyone would like to help, just say so! Right now the main thing I need is a way for it to connect to the internet. It will then connect to floodgaps server at gopher://gopher.floodgap.com/1



    FAQ:
    Q: What is Gopher?
    A: Gopher is a protocol like HTTP for connecting to the internet. It was the main protocol until HTTP came in the late 90s. It is kinda like a old internet.

    Q: What does Gopher include?
    A: It has a whole bunch of servers called "Gopherholes" filled with text files, ascii art, and a lot other things. Kinda like mini BBSs without the posting to boards. GopherHole will only be able to open text files, but save other kinds onto the SD card.

    Q: This doesn't have any illegal activities on it, right?
    A: Hard to say. Gopherholes are completely the users own little space, and some may have files on how to do these things.


    DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT ENDORSE ANY OF THE ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES POSTED ON A GOPHERHOLE

    Holy shit, gopher still exists?

    I remember following a tutorial for it in the 90s, but can't say I ever mastered it as such, because, you know, the web happened.

    Thanks! It will take a while though. I have to find a way for cubic ninja to connect to the interwebz and then somehow add support for the protocol all together.
