BitchX is the premiere IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client. It originally was a modified version of the popular ircII client, and the features were eventually merged into the EPIC IRC client. The current development is aimed at merging the client back to a current branch of EPIC and bringing compatibility and stability back to the client, while bringing the features that are BitchX into a new client.
CDSA stands for Common Data Security Architecture. It provides a security framework that includes cryptographically signed modules to present an abstracted unified API to the application developer to perform cryptographic and security related operations. It also includes hardware support for cryptographic tokens and biometric devices, such as thumbprint scanners. Intel has implemented the CDSA 2 specification and released it as open source.
dteq is a query tool that passes results through a template. It is well-suited for auto-generating all kinds of things from a database like authentication tables, DNS zone files, or whatever you can come up with. It also does updating commands like INSERT and UPDATE and reports back the number of rows affected. This used to be named mysqlquery but it is now DB-independent, with cdb, MySQL, and PostgreSQL drivers available.
Heirloom mailx (formerly known as "nail") is derived from Berkeley Mail and provides the functionality of the System V and POSIX mailx commands. Additional features include support for MIME, IMAP (including caching and disconnected use), POP3, SMTP, S/MIME, international character sets, maildir folders, message threading, powerful search methods, scoring, and a Bayesian junk mail filter. Mailx can be used as a mail batch language in nearly the same way as it is used interactively. It can thus act as a mailbox filter, can fetch mail from remote accounts, and can send files as attachments.
The OpenBSD project produces a free, multi-platform 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system. Its goals emphasize portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security, and integrated cryptography. OpenBSD supports binary emulation of most programs from SVR4 (Solaris), FreeBSD, Linux, BSD/OS, SunOS, and HP-UX.
Over5 is a program for transferring between c64/vic20 machines and Amiga/PC/UNIX boxes. It supports serial transfer at 38400 bps using only a RS-232 level converter and a 3-line standard nullmodem cable. No special serialport chips are needed. Source code is included. It features read/write/execute memory, filecopy with wildcards, read/write raw disk, read/write ZIPCODE archive, the ability to use the Amiga/PC/UNIX box as a harddisk server ($0801-$f600), builtin diskturbo, and a fast basic bootstrap for most cbm 8-bitters.
qmail-ldap is an extension to stock qmail-1.03 to get all user account information from an LDAP database. Its primary target is POP toasters with thousands to millions of users, such as in ISP, FreeMail, and Corporate environments. It features full SMTP/POP3/IMAP server clustering for scaling and high availablity. Additionally there are state-of-the art spam filters, TLS SMTP encrytion, and mailbox quotas. A migration path for Netscape Messenger and Software.com's Post.Office installations is provided.
squid_redirect uses a list of patterns to zap annoying ad banners from Web pages, inserting a placeholder image. It lives in a Web proxy and so requires no special browser facilities. It's readily customizable, small, fast, and easy to install. (In Debian/Ubuntu, this program is named "adzapper".)
