You're going to reference something called 'Archie', I thought I knew what was coming at the other end of the link.  Archie, WAIS and gopher were all around the same time iirc - '92?

/me has had the address john at gn.apc.org since June 19*88*.  It's been a while since we did these comparisons and I'm sure that at least Dean will have me beat....


[ps: yeah, new address.  new gig.]
