1/ The type character on the gooher server side is bad for todays use otherwise the Gopher protocol is awesome.
I wish the Gooher protocol woul bd restandardized with new type characters. E.g 0-1 are reserved, all the others are the ports of the services delegated by IANA.
2/ Back in the days the IANA port delegation didn’t existed I think.
