um been using bang paths and arpanet as well as alternate methods of getting places since messing around with the college machines and other pre world wide web internet protocols and 'pipes'.... Seeing how vulnerable and controlled the current methods are we would have been better off using something else, why oh why did the protocol wars end this way? Musta been those d*ck heads at CERN that did it thinking we would all just sing koombaya and suddenly get along and do no harm..... it was about 2 years ago they killed my bang paths off.... but maybe they still sort of exist in usenet.
You can still control the path you take to a degree..... forcing a path does not always work anymore either... dang new fangled equipment....
I found me some goher... only sadly no Atari dug up in the remaining gopher holes...
so get your Atari running LYNX, or add overbite to firefox and get digging!
Now back to our regularly scheduled program... find the Atari specialty software and sites and truely archive them!
