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.
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.
GNUSTEP Live CD contains a lot of software for GNUstep, a free implementation of the OPENSTEP framework (which is also directly used in Mac OS X as Cocoa). It includes excellent applications for RAD (GORM and ProjectCenter). The CD is available for i486, AMD64, Apple Mac PowerPC, and Sun UltraSPARC computers.
XChestival is an improved version of xchat_speak designed for Italian. It lets xchat and irssi "speak" through festival. It comes with a script for xchat and irssi and the Italian phonemes. The scripts have some useful features like channels and query filtering and string substitution.
