Drupal is a modular content management system, forum, blogging and community engine. It is database driven and can be used with MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. Its features include (but are not limited to) discussion forums, Web-based administration, theme support, a submission queue, content rating, content versioning, taxonomy support, user management with a fine-grained permission system based on user roles (groups), error logging, support for content syndication, locale support, and much more. It is considered to be an excellent platform for developers due to its clean code and extensibility, and it can also be used as a Web application framework.
Thatware is a Slash lookalike. It is a Web-based news publishing and discussion backend written in PHP that can handle threaded discussions with a minimum of configuration and day-to-day management. It includes Web-based administration, polls, access statistics, user customizable boxes, a themes manager for registered users, the ability to edit or delete stories, a moderation system, search engine, backend/headlines generation (WAP and RSS/RDF format), and support for 7 languages.
myBackware is a set of scripts that create a regular set of database dump files for the disaster recovery of MySQL servers. It uses MySQL's mysqldump to create backups as either a filesystem-stored snapshot or as an email attachment. Either method has the option to compress and GPG-encrypt the dump file.
I don't have any plans to continue developing Thatware.

For the record, as of 10/8/2005, I'm happy with PHP5.1.0-dev, so yes it is an old comment.
