Ebotula is an IRC bot for administration tasks in one or more channels. It has four access levels. The top level is the bot master, where a user has complete access to all functions. The channel owner is the administrator in one channel. The other levels are friends and other users. The bot is a multithread application and can execute more commands simultaneously. The data are contained in gdbm hash files.
Akeni LAN messenger is a cross-platform instant messenger client. It is a P2P program that works on your LAN without the need of an Internet connection or a dedicated server. The client has an user interface similar to AIM, ICQ, or MSN Messenger. It supports all the standard IM features such as chat, group conference, presence management, file transfer, and emergency alert/notification. Extra features include contact management and optional tabbed chat sessions.
IMLogger provides a usable program to enable network administrators to log certain instant messaging activities (namely, login and logout). AOL is currently supported, with Yahoo, MSN, and Jabber protocols in the works. This is very useful in Universities where campus police want to trace a SN back to a port/dorm room.
ptybuffer was designed to get rid of screen/expect constructs to improve stability. It daemonizes programs which need a TTY/PTY to operate. Unix domain sockets then can connect, send lines to the program and receive the output (with history) of the program in real time. It also includes NWNadm, a PHP-based Neverwinter Nights server administration frontend, which includes a demonstration of an easy Web-based command-line shell access to the computer.
