Gopher server revived after 15 years of downtime • The Register

“The Internet Gopher protocol is designed primarily to act as a
distributed document delivery system. While documents (and services)
reside on many servers, Gopher client software presents users with a
hierarchy of items and directories much like a file system. In fact, the
Gopher interface is designed to resemble a file system since a file
system is a good model for locating documents and services.”

Did the US Government Make a Pact With Aliens to Get Technology?

The aliens violated the pact, said Schneider, by taking more humans than agreed upon. A war with the aliens has been fought ever since. He said the aliens plan to take over Earth by 2029 and he called on the government to tell citizens what it knows.
He said: “We don’t have a whole heap of time left.”

Bat-drone uses shape-shifting wings to skim over water | New Scientist



Inspired by the way bats change the shape of their wings to control their movement, Robert Bleischwitz
of the University of Southampton, UK, and his colleagues designed thin,
flexible wings that use the same principle. The force of air passing
over the membranes causes vibrations that enhance the drone’s
aerodynamics. “It’s similar to vibrations seen in flags during a storm,”
says Bleischwitz.




During take-off, the drone behaves like a hovercraft as air is forced
below the wing. Once in the air, it can continue to skim across the
water or cruise at greater speeds a metre or so in the air.
