Vipul's Razor is a distributed, collaborative, spam detection and filtering network that exploits the broadcast characteristic of spam distribution to limit its propagation. The primary focus of the system is to identify and disable an email spam before its injection and processing is complete. Razor establishes a distributed and constantly updating catalogue of spam in propagation. This catalogue is used by clients to filter out known spam.
Chronic is a constraints-based opportunistic application-level scheduler. Unlike cron, which schedules according to a time specification, it schedules tasks when specified constraints are met. In other words, it schedules during a window of opportunity when the circumstances are favorable.
Re: xs4all and munitions.

rsync servers are available again.

They are indeed. xs4all gratiously donated
a top-of-the-line server and an unmetered
100 mbps link to host the primary munitions
Speaking of munitions, we are on a mirror
setup drive at the moment. If you are interested
in putting up a mirror, please drop me a
mail at email@example.com (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org). For a web based mirror,
we need a well connected unix box, running
apache, perl, ssh and rsync with ~3gb of free
Anonymous rsync access died when we shited
the primary to xs4all, but it should be restored by
tonight. If you want to do a files only mirror,
you would be able to snarf the archive with rsync.
