[gopher] Any webcomics fans out here?


I like to read a few web comics from time to time. I prefer to read when I'm away from a computer, preferably on my smartphone. My problem is that checking for updates of my favorite webcomics is taking ages on a smallish screen with a sluggish android web browser.

On the other hand, Overbite is working very nicely (fast!) on my Android, therefore I came up with the idea that I will read webcomics on my phone via gopher since now on.

All this to say that I've set up a little gopher service that grabs automatically updates from latest webcomics I like, and allow to browse them via gopher. If there are some webcomics freaks like me out here, I'd love to hear what you think about this:


Not sure that sharing the code of this 'GophComix' engine would be of any interest to the community... But if so, I might package it to make it possible for others to reuse it for similar purposes.

Too bad that the android version of overbite do not supports displaying images on html pages :/ Is it something that have any chance to get improved in some future, or should I consider Overbite on Android an 'end of life' software? :)
