Back when most organizations had only one computer (likely a Unix +mainframe) on which everyone had their own account, the Finger Protocol would be +used to display information about those working at the organization (what they were +working on, contact information, etc.). Nowadays, although some groups may +continue to use it for that purpose, it's mainly used by small internet +enthusiasts such as myself as a way to share basic contact information and +what's going on in our lives. + +You can finger(1) me using a browser which supports the protocol (such as +[Lagrange](https://github.com/skyjake/lagrange)) at +[finger://paritybit.ca/jbauer](finger://paritybit.ca/jbauer) or by specifying +`finger jbauer@paritybit.ca` on the command line. + diff --git a/content/index.md b/content/index.md @@ -4,18 +4,10 @@ Summary: The personal website and blog of Jake Bauer. # [%title] My name is Jake though I usually go by "jbauer" online.
