MetalServe is a standalone DCC file server that can be used to share files on Internet Relay Chat (IRC) networks such as EFNet and Undernet. Unlike the only available similar Unix program, iroffer, which offers "packs" of files, MetalServe offers single files similar to the way the SDFind, SPRJukebox, and OmenServe scripts for mIRC, a Windows IRC client, work.
MPN (Matrix Public Net) is a peer2peer network, based on people that trust each other. Messages are broadcasted over these links between the members of the net. Everyone gets the messages from friends and other persons he or she trusts. Then they are recommended to the ones that trust him/her. At each step the credibility of a message is decreased and if it is too small, the message is discarded and not recommended to friends. Part of the MPN is a XMMS/Winamp-Plugin that puts newsblocks into your music, whether it is Internet radio or MP3s from your hard disk/CD-ROM. The news are coming from your friends and other trustworthies (and from the friends of those, and so on). To publish a message you use the greporter program, which lets you easily record an audio message though a microphone.
xchat_speak is a small Perl script designed to be used with xchat to act as a bridge between it and the Festival Speech Synthesis System. Using it allows you to listen to IRC conversations rather than just reading them. This turns out to be quite useful if you want to get on with something else while IRCing.
XChat-XMMS allows XMMS to be controlled from within XChat. It can send out messages to channels or other IRC users, and supports searching playlists with Perl regular expresions, DCC transfers, understands MP3 and Ogg-Vorbis tags, caches playlists for quick searches, and allows remote playlist browsing via /msg. It also supports auto- messages and auto-topics.
Thump (The Unix MP3 Player) is a flexible and modular set of MP3 playing daemons written in Python. The daemons communicate with each other and the rest of the world via XML, and playlist management is handled by a combination of standard file manipulation utilities (such as find) and regular expressions.
