Sorry, but it was trivial enough that I didn't bother saving it. I was
exploring the various socket APIs in Self (I had never looked at them
before) and wrote a code fragment that I would execute directly to see
what would happen. My idea was to show the students the effect of
spawning a new thread for each incoming request rather than handling
them all in a single loop.

This was about five minutes worth of coding including lots of
explanations. The code ignored what the browser sent and replied with a
constant string.

There might be some other server examples in the normal (Deno) Self

What I have saved locally is a rather random sample of what was
published. If somebody has a more complete archive it would be a better
starting point.
