1. telnet gopher.upenn.edu
2. From the resulting menu, choose number 3 (Gopher servers at Penn).
i.e., move your cursor to number 3, and press the enter/return key on
your computer keyboard.
3. From that menu, choose number 1 (center for computer analysis of texts)
4. From that menu, choose number 1 (search all CCAT menus using
jughead). Once you press the return key, you should get a prompt that
asks you for "Words to search for"; at that point, type shakespeare.
