cerberus is a modular and robust network operator and drone monitoring service designed to protect IRC networks from common threats that plague the community. It uses a BIND9-style configuration file with a mix of Perl syntax. It includes a map module that displays a server map along with basic information, stats/protocol for core protocol support, sql, an interface to DBI, modcontrol for controlling modules in use via IRC, login, operlist for displaying a list of all operators on the network, and more. It was designed for use with pure TS6 networks such as ircd-ratbox and ircd-hybrid.
Foremost is a console program that recovers files based on their headers, footers, and internal data structures. This process is commonly referred to as data carving. Foremost can work on image files, such as those generated by dd, Safeback, Encase, etc., or directly on a drive. The headers and footers can be specified by a configuration file, or you can use command line switches to specify built-in file types. These built-in types look at the data structures of a given file format, allowing for a more reliable and faster recovery. It was originally developed by the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations and The Center for Information Systems Security Studies and Research.
a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.
"Stupid Simple VPN" is a virtual private networking program contained as source in a 7.0KB tarball. It does not daemonize, and is intended to create a temporary VPN for emergency circumstances when you "just need a pipe" without the hassle of authentication, keys, encryption, and compression. It runs on OS X using the tuntaposx driver and Linux 2.6 using the native tuntap driver.
Stigma is a client for connecting to Omegle. It currently supports all of the non-video Web interface. Future releases will also have support for built-in translation, so non-English speakers can connect to the main Omegle site. There are no plans yet to get more than just the text version, but most of the text-chat functionality is usable and stable already.
advent4 is a port of the original Colossal Cave text adventure to Unix. It should work without any change on HP-UX, Sun Solaris, *BSD, and GNU/Linux systems. The actual license of this program is unknown, although most people agree that it is likely to be considered to be under the public domain.
