About a week ago, I registered on
envs.net. I originally registered because I was about to
deprecate an old e-mail address from 2020 and wanted to replace it
with a new one which I could use for GitHub (because GitHub sure
does not want me to use any cock.li addresses!) - but as I was
about to sign up I found out that not only do they give you an
e-mail address if you sign up for a shell account on their system,
but also a temporary file hoster, a Cryptpad instance, an event
manager, a BBS and most importantly for this post, the ability to
host a gemsite and/or gopherhole in their server.
And since not only have I been interested on setting up a gemsite for several months already, but also had spents a few months exploring Gemini websites and absolutely loving everything I saw, the choice was obvious - and I soon started work on a Gemini version of this very site, which is called kodzuken.
You can access Kodzuken at
gemini://envs.net/~kodzuken through a Gemini browser - my
personal recommendations being Lagrange
if you are a Windows pleb or just want a nice, familiar-looking
browser that just works and can customize easily, Elaho if you're a poor soul stuck with an
iToy and Bombadillo
if you're a based *Nix user, CLI application fanatic and Vim-style
keybinds enjoyer like me.
I unfortunately do not have any Android devices I have full control over so I cannot recommend any clients for them (although Lagrange seems to have an Android beta in the works).
Right now Kodzuken is currently playing catch-up to this very site, but once that's done expect anything to come out on here to also come out on there at about the same time (if not even earlier depending on the type of content it is)
At the end of the day, however, Kodzuken is nohing more and nothing less than just another personal website on Gemspace, which happens to be similar and different from this one random site on the World Wide Web.
