Gopher mirror of the IF Archive has new look

I did something long overdue for my gopher mirror of the IF Archive. Now instead of simply being shown directories and files with no descriptions, I wrote a Perl script that goes through the archive and creates meaningful gophermap files wherever an Index file is found. One exception is for the root of the Archive, which has a hand-written gophermap file. This script is run just after doing a sync with the master Archive. Please check it out and let me know what you think.

The gopher mirror of the IF Archive can be found at gopher://


Please be patient with me as I try different tactics and looks. My overall goal is to make the gopher mirror look reasonably close to the www version and then upload my script that does all this magic to the IF Archive so that other people can make their own gopher mirrors.
