All of the news, none of the markup. Text only, Gopher only.

This is a Gopher only site. Please use a gopher client to view this content:

Floodgap has a public Gopher <> HTTP proxy:

Why gopher?

Underneath this is a python script which converts RSS feeds to plain text articles with some readability magic (to get the actual content).

The script can be found here:
