Arrow is an elegant, powerful, graphical interface to electronic mail. This is not just another single window mail reader. Instead, it displays each mailbox and message in a separate window, thereby allowing one to simultaneously open as many mailboxes and view and compose as many messages as one wishes. This paradigm also allows one to drag-and-drop text between messages and organize ones mail by dragging messages between mailboxes.
"Ball", the Byzantine Askemos Language Layer, is an intrusion resistant and incorruptible, autonomous distributed operating system. It provides application programmers with continuations, messages, and rights management on top of a peer-to-peer network resisting byzantine failures of network nodes. The API significantly raises the level of abstraction in comparison with other operating systems: there are very few system calls, and these are expressed in XML. An alternative understanding of Askemos is that of an XML object database with stored procedures.
Asterisk is a hybrid TDM and packet voice PBX (Private Branch eXchange) and IVR platform with ACD functionality. It acts as middleware between the Internet (IAX, SIP, MGCP, Skinny, H.323), telephony channels (like Zaptel, T1, PRI, E1, FXO, FXS, VoIP, VoFR, ISDN, modems, Internet Phone Jack, etc.), and applications (like voice-mail, conferencing, directories, MP3 players, intercoms, etc.). It has many advanced features such as a codec translation API. The base distribution includes several channel backends, as well as applications. However, the beauty of Asterisk is its ability to be extended using its APIs, dynamic module loader, and AGI scripting interface. End users can even write their own applications that run on the system in C or any scripting language of their choice.
aubng is a Usenet binary decoder implemented entirely in Perl5. It has a boatload of features, including: decoding of uuencoded and Base64 postings, assembling multi-part postings, remembering already seen binaries in a newsrc file, saving metadata about news postings, smart renaming of binaries with the same name, removal of duplicate binaries, and easy XML-based configuration. Aubng also features an extensible handler architecture, so it is easy to add your own features.
Audiogalaxy's Satellite is a distributed music search agent. It is a small application which does mp3 searching and file transfer and makes a designated directory on your computer searchable by other Satellite users. It features a real-time transaction-based system for file sharing. The Linux version has no user interface, but files are selected via the Web for transfer from other users.
The Auerswald ETS 4308i ISDN PBX Reverse Engineering Project is a completely Open Source client software kit for the Auerswald ETS 4308i ISDN PBX. It aims to implement tools for using the LCR-feature of the PBX effectively, for changing the PBX's configuration, for reading out the phone call accounting, and for using the ISDN-D-channel-protocol of the PBX as input source or isdnlog.
AUC (Authenticated User Community) is an intranet system designed for use in an educational organization but is also useful in many other settings. It offers the ability for users to have a uniform web-based interface to discussion forums, e-mail (similar to hotmail, etc.), file management, and a searchable user database. Also, "Interactive Classrooms" provide a means for students and teachers to have a web-based extension to their in-class interaction. The system runs from a C-based monolithic CGI script. MySQL is used for database storage. Also, the web-based mail client supports MIME parts/attachments, IMAP, mbox, and multiple mail folders.
NFSv4 specifies that the RPC calls be batched into a "compound" call. There is no support for this in RPCGEN. By rearranging the ONC IDL for NFSv4 into AutoGen definitions, these templates will emit the original IDL *plus* all the code to package, send, distribute, collect, return, and dispatch the results. The distributed program author merely needs to call and supply server procedures for the routines specified in the IDL. Templates for these calls and service routines is provided, too. The NFSv4 definitions are included.
Autosig is a small utility for generating .signature files for email and .plan files for finger. The file is generated from a quote randomly selected from a file of quotes and a header file. The header file and the randomly selected quote are combined to form the signature file or plan file. It can be run as a frontend to your favorite mail client, or as a daemon.
