The Internet Gopher Client is based on the UMN Gopher/Gopherd 2.3.1 code. Gopher is an Internet technology that predates the Web. It presents information as a virtual network-wide filesystem. Modern browsers such as Konqueror can display gopherspace as if it contained files on your local machine (trees, drag and drop, etc.), but the difference is that each file or folder in that tree may be on a different machine.
OfflineIMAP is a tool to simplify email reading. It allows you to read the same mailbox from multiple computers and ensures that your changes will be automatically reflected on all computers. You can use various mail clients to read a single box or read mail while offline with full synchronization when you reconnect. You can read IMAP mail with readers that lack IMAP support (same goes for SSL). OfflineIMAP's multithreaded synchronization algorithm performs between 10 and 60 times faster than many mail readers' internal IMAP support, and it can be used even with mail readers that support IMAP already. There are five available user interface modules, including scripted execution, an interactive terminal interface, and GUI interfaces.
PyGopherD is a modern Gopher server. It can serve documents with Gopher+, standard Gopher (RFC 1436), and HTTP all on the same port. It features a modular extension system, loadable scripts, and more. It contains full support for UMN gopherd systems, including .Links, .names, .cap, searches, etc. It also supports Bucktooth features such as gophermap files and executables, along with its own extra features.
Debian From Scratch is really two related components in one. First, it's a live bootable CD image that is designed to provide a full-featured kernel and rescue environment. It includes filesystem tools, editors, C compilers, Python, Perl, and everything you need to manually install Debian on a new machine. On ix86 machines, Grub is used to boot directly from the CD. There is also a program that is used to create the DFS CD images. It is highly configurable and can be used to create other custom bootable CD or DVD images. You can include whatever kernel or packages you want.
MissingH is a library of all sorts of utility functions for Haskell programmers. It is written in pure Haskell and thus should be extremely portable and easy to use. It also has no prerequisites save those that are commonly included with Haskell compilers. Highlights of MissingH include a full logging infrastructure, printf() implementations, various string and I/O utilities, a FTP client library, and more.
hslogger is a logging framework for Haskell, roughly similar to Python's logging module. hpodder lets each log message have a priority and source be associated with it. The programmer can then define global handlers that route or filter messages based on the priority and source. hslogger also has a syslog handler built in.
AnyDBM is a Haskell module that provides a generic infrastructure for supporting storage of hash-like items with String-to-String mappings. It can be used for in-memory or on-disk storage. Two simple backend drivers are included with this package: one that is RAM-only, and one that is persistent and disk-backed. The hdbc-anydbm package provides another driver which lets you use simple tables in any SQL database to provide a DBM-like interface. MissingPy also provides a Python driver which lets you use any Python anydbm driver under Haskell AnyDBM.
The ConfigFile module for Haskell works with configuration files in a standard format that is easy for the user to edit, easy for the programmer to work with, and yet remains powerful and flexible. It is inspired by, and is compatible with, Python's ConfigParser module. It uses files that resemble Windows .INI-style files, but with numerous improvements. ConfigFile provides simple calls to both read and write config files. It's possible to make a config file parsable by this module, the Unix shell, and make.
LDAP for Haskell provides an interface to the C LDAP API for Haskell programmers. With it, you can search and modify LDAP directories. The Haskell binding features automatic memory management and proper handling for binary data, and handles all marshalling into and out of C data structures for you automatically.
HDBC provides an abstraction layer between Haskell programs and SQL relational databases. This lets you write database code once, in Haskell, and have it work with any number of backend SQL databases (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, ODBC-compliant databases, etc.) HDBC is modeled loosely on Perl's DBI interface, though it has also been influenced by Python's DB-API v2, JDBC in Java, and HSQL in Haskell.
The ListLike module provides a common interface to the various Haskell types that are "list-like". Predefined interfaces include standard Haskell lists, Arrays, ByteStrings, and lazy ByteStrings. Custom types can easily be made ListLike instances as well. ListLike also provides for String-like types, such as String and ByteString, for types that support I/O, and for types that can handle infinite lists.
datapacker is a tool to group files by size such that they fill fixed-size containers (called "bins") using the minimum number of containers. This is useful, for instance, if you want to archive a number of files to CD or DVD, and want to organize them such that you use the minimum possible number of CDs or DVDs. In many cases, datapacker executes almost instantaneously. Of particular note, the hardlink action can be used to effectively copy data into bins without having to actually copy the data at all. datapacker is a tool in the traditional Unix style; it can be used in pipes and call other tools.
twidge is a client for microblogging sites such as Twitter and Identica (identi.ca). It is extremely versatile, can be customized to work the way you want to work, and can be combined with other tools to do just about anything. It can be used interactively from the shell. It is useful directly as-is, and with simple shell aliases can make a highly efficient system to do exactly what you want. It is perfectly capable of being your only client for microblogging. It can also be used in an automated way, via cron(1), or it can even integrate with your email system.
