The Interverse is the evolution and combination of the Web, chat, instant messaging (IM), and voice communication. It is not just a graphical user interface (GUI), but an immersive user interface (IUI). The Interverse is a virtual universe running on top of the Internet. It uses the Crystal Space 3D engine to render the user's view of the world.
Yeemp is a decentralized instant messaging system. It uses GPG over SSL for encryption, and UTF-8 to enable non-Latin text to be transferred. The X client can request and receive webcam feeds. The clients include support for Japanese, Cyrillic, and Ogham input, as well as direct UTF-8. Yeemp includes a command-line client, an X client, a server, and a simple Web-based client. The clients can also use the AIM and ICQ protocols.
pxys is an efficient open proxy scanner software suite for Undernet IRC(u). It scans the clients' IPs to check for misconfigured WinGate, Cisco, SOCKS 4, SOCKS 5, some IRC bouncers, and other vulnerable HTTP proxies. Using the peak library for socket and asynchronous events handling, it is dedicated to run on huge IRCU networks, and is currently running on Undernet to avoid the overwhelming abuse of these proxy servers being exploited daily.
SMSTerm is an application that uses the ICQ2000 protocol to present you a shell on your mobile phone which allows you to interact with your computer from any mobile on a GSM network. It runs a shell on a pty, and allows you to directly send commands to the shell through SMS. Minimal authentication is done over SMS before spawning a shell and offering it to the user on the mobile phone. It is very useful for remote administration tasks, or checking out the status of the network, or just to run some small chores on your system while you are away. It uses Expect.pm in the background. SMSTerm also includes a script to send SMS through the ICQ network from the command line to any GSM mobile, and also includes a PHP script to set up a Web->SMS gateway.
Gangplank is a Computer Mediated Communication (CMC) system (or "chat server") which supports real-time communication between users, currently using a text-based user interface. It runs as an Internet server which implements the standard telnet protocol, so no special client program is necessary for users. Server-side processing provides input editing/history and terminal- handling features over the telnet connection for standard ANSI terminals. This code has been in production use on a private server since early 1993. This single-process server is fast, efficient and stable.
