autodl-irssi is an advanced and easy to use torrent file downloader plugin for Irssi. The optional ruTorrent plugin (GUI) makes it even easier to use. The installer will set everything up. It works by connecting to your torrent tracker's IRC announce channel. You tell it exactly which IRC servers and channels to connect to and it does the rest. When a new torrent is announced, and matches one of the user filters, it's immediately downloaded. There's no delay like RSS, which polls once every 5-15 minutes. Once downloaded, the torrent file can be saved to a torrent client watch directory, sent to rtorrent, or uploaded to an FTP server. It supports more than 70 private trackers, and it's very easy to add your own if you know some basic XML and regular expressions. The filters are easy to set up, but also advanced. Some of the filters are release name, TV show name, torrent size, resolution, encoder, source, year, format, bitrate, medium, category, and many more. To prevent you from accidentally downloading too many files at once, you can also tell it to only allow X number of downloads per day, week, or month.
Winnow efficiently trains and operates any number of unique Bayesian (Naive Bayes) classifiers on large sets of content. It has very high performance and works with very small training and unbalanced training sets. It has been used to power an innovative Web feed reader that uses smart tags, which learn and find the content you want to see, from more sources than you can follow with traditional feed readers. It works particularly well with Ruby and Ruby on Rails.
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.
