In case you wonder how to access a server, it's very simple, open a terminal and use the venerable 'telnet' program. For example:

$ telnet zaibatsu.circumlunar.space 70

Then once you're in, type '/' and hit return. You'll see a list of paths starting with '/'. For example, '/about'. Type that and you get the "about" message, etc.

Cool. Takes me back several years, except then I used a GUI.

Also, I go the 'Connection closed by foreign host.' error after I tried to connect just now.

@tim It closes the connection after every request. If what you typed does not match any path, it will give an error.
