7.8. When I type gopher" I see command not found! How can I access Gopher?

There are two possibilities. If you're on the Internet and have the Telnet program, you can try connecting to any hosts on the following list of systems, logging in as gopher or the account name specified.

Hostname	Login
Here are the overseas options:

Hostname Login Location
To use any of these, you would type telnet hostname and then log in with gopher or the appropriate login specified in the table. For example, UNC is the University of North Carolina (one of the first two Usenet sites!), and I would like to see how they've set up their Gopher system. I type telnet, and when I'm prompted for an account, I type gopher. It immediately shows me the choices at UNC.
