Hmm - there is something strange about that URL - it might be molly 
brown redirecting. I'll investigate.

But anyway, the URL is not a valid one - were you just playing around or 
did you follow a link from somewhere that linked to that URL?

There is a CGI demo here

gemini://gemini.marmaladefoo.com/cgi-bin/hello-world.cgi where you can 
put your name, e.g.

gemini://gemini.marmaladefoo.com/cgi-bin/hello-world.cgi?name=gerald

There is an email address for yours truly on the root page of the capsule!
