Maximus is a module manager for BlitzMax. Maximus is made out of two parts. The first is a Web application that provides a place to host BlitzMax modules. A Web site made with this application is responsible for supplying module packages to the Maximus client. The client is used to install and manage installed modules on your computer.
Noostr is a content management system aimed squarely at social news networks. Sites like Reddit, Hacker News, and Digg are all social news aggregators, just like your Noostr site will be. People can sign in, submit news stories or ask questions, and everyone can vote for the best ones. Those top stories float to the front page and generate more traffic, more comments, and more votes.
