Silas S. Brown's Gemini capsule

Hi, I'm a partially-sighted computer scientist at Cambridge University in the UK. I come from rural West Dorset on the South-West peninsula of England. I play the flute and I've been learning Chinese slowly since about the beginning of the century.

This Gemini capsule is currently mirrored on both and because I was using it to compare the configurations of these servers with respect to language tagging (I have both English and Chinese on my pages), see Issue 23 in the molly-brown server repository. The addresses of this capsule are gemini:// and gemini://

Please also feel free to browse my Web home page (on HTTP or HTTPS, whichever you prefer) which is 'old-school' lightweight HTML, although it does have a bit more formatting than Gemini (in particular I do use emphasis tags in places, which don't seem to port well to Gemini): I still have quite a few HTML pages that are harder to port to Gemini.
