H Friends,


i repeatedly see the URL gemini://h2903872.stratoserver.net/favicon.txt in
my server's log. Neither LaGrange nor the Kristal-Browser are trying to
access a /favicon.txt/ file. Anyone has an idea where this is coming from,
weather this is something useful and what should i put into that file?

The specification can be found here:


As much as i know my client is the only one that search for favicon,because i doubt it has a big userbase (or even an userbase :-)) iguess there must be some other ones (old version of amfora, maybe?).

Anyway, if you want, just put an emoji in that URI, you'll make somepeople smile! :)
