Kipt (Kizome's ISA Piercing Tool) is an HTTP proxy server and proxying name server with the ability to forward requests to other HTTP proxies or to get the documents directly from hosts. It can go through MS ISA Server or MS Proxy doing NTLM authentication. If you're stuck behind a restrictive firewall or proxy with at least one port open for outgoing connections and you have access to a machine outside, you can have nearly full Internet access by using this proxy and the socksify program from dante.
Chicken is a Scheme compiler that translates most of R5RS Scheme into relatively portable C. It supports fully general tail-call recursion, first-class continuations, and has a very flexible and efficient interface to C and C++. Chicken implements several extensions to the Scheme language: lightweight threads, pattern matching macros, dynamic loading of compiled code, and various object-oriented paradigms, such as TinyCLOS, and others. The library system includes hundreds of convenient modules for practical use.
