The PunBB JumpBox provides a fully self-contained instance of the powerful PunBB forum in the time it takes to download. PunBB is a lightweight discussion forum that provides the essential features to host a thriving community without the tedious database, Web server, and application setup. It may have fewer bells and whistles than other forum applications but it has an intuitive user interface and renders XHTML-compliant output.
ansistego provides terminal-level steganography for scripts and other ASCII files (ie, protection against 'cat'). It intersperses a text/script with commented ANSI codes that cause most terminals to clear sensitive lines as soon as they are written. Only a specified front text appears. The front text is embedded in the script using ANSI-cloaked comments, so that the text appears unaltered when the script is viewed with cat, but the script can be run without any decoding stage.
PhunkyBB is a Web-based forum system that is distinguished by its use of XSL as its template language. By using XSL, PhunkyBB is able to run on several different platforms, not only in terms of operating system, but also programming language. At this time, it has only been tested and used on PHP, but some test runs have been done on Perl, Python, Tcl, and Ruby.
dd_chat (formerly known as dd_ntalk-door) is a chat system derived from ntalk to be used with the DayDream BBS. The dd_chat client is a "door" program for the DayDream BBS that provides an easy-to-use chat client for the dd_chat server. Unlike the original ntalk client / server system, dd_chat implements several features from DayDream's libdd as well as an extended command set. It integrates seamlessly into DayDream. It features private conversation, checking for remaining BBS online time, chat idle timeouts (five minutes, except when in "away" mode), support for an ANSI logo and ANSI help screens from DayDream's "display" directory, and updating user status in DayDream.
