siconv (StreamICONV) filters its stdin to stdout while converting from one character set to another. It does this via the iconv(3) function provided by glibc (but not well documented under Linux). All you need to do is cat your data through it and redirect stdout to your desired file or program. The iconv command line function that comes with glibc appears to read everything into a single buffer before converting. If you need to translate 1GB of data, that obviously wouldn't work; thus, this program.
Sashenka is yet another framework for building IRC clients and bots. It contains a J2EE Servlet Container for running IRCServlets, along with the necessary utilities and accessories to write bots following the J2EE Servlet model. Another aspect of Sashenka is the IRC framework which implementors may very easily incorporate into IRC clients or other bot engines of their own design.
Marko is a simple toolset that allows you to create markov chain databases of a corpus (or two) of text and then allows you to compare unknown texts to these databases. For any two marko databases you can calculate the probability that the unknown body is related to one over the other. Possible applications include intelligent mail filtering, plagiarism detection, and historical research.
WBL is a really simple tool that can be used in a .qmail file for managing a white/black list of email addresses. It serves as a pre-filter to allow known-good friends and associates bypass the usual gauntlet of filters. Note that WBL is not intended to be a spam filter, it is simply an easy-to-use whitelist/blacklist management tool that serves to keep email that you really want to see out of your normal filters.
TinyDYN is a package of client and server software for operating dynamic DNS services. It enables anyone to run dynamic DNS services using strong authentication or to be a client of someone using TinyDYN as a dynamic IP management system. The clients can communicate directly by UDP with the server, by email, or by any other transport the admin can imagine, as the mechanism is quite straightforward.
Grifcat is a simple utility which monitors a Griffin Powermate and sends state change information to the calling script. It tracks the button and wheel motion, reporting each move as it occurs and accumulating net changes in both directions. It is convenient for script writers and those looking for an easy way to integrate the powermate into their applications via a simple coprocess. Grifcat uses libusb to access the USB in a platform independent manner.
