finger (RFC 1288) server-side daemon

Project description

finger is both a protocol and a utility to get the information and status from a user on a distant machine. It was standardized in RFC 742 in 1977, then in RFC 1288 in 1991, and has been abandoned since.

While describing the protocol in a blog post of mine, I wanted to implement this protocol for fun, but didn’t want to present the real information about the users on my server, so I made this to present some fictional information in order to be able to tell a story through finger.
