Smuxi is an irssi-inspired, flexible, user-friendly, and cross-platform IRC client for sophisticated users. Smuxi is based on the client-server model: The core application (engine) can be placed onto a server which is connected to the Internet around-the-clock; one or more frontends then connect to the core. This allows the connection to IRC to be kept up even when all frontends have been closed. The combination of screen and irssi served as the example for this architecture. Smuxi also supports the regular single application mode. This behaves like a typical IRC client; it doesn't need separate core management and utilizes a local engine that is used by the local frontend client.

Designed for the Bahamut, Hybrid, and ircu IRCds, bopm is a replacement for first generation proxy monitors (wgmon, tcm). It extends them by adding support for SOCKS4, SOCKS5, WinGate, HTTP proxies, insecure Cisco routers, HTTP POST proxies, simultaneous connections, and a more scalable model (written in C). BOPM also has support for a DNS blacklist, similar to MAPS RBL+ or Visi RSL.
Howie is an artificial intelligence agent with a natural language interface (a "chatterbot"). It is designed to be simple to install, configure, and extend.
