bigquotes is a quotes database based on the bpquotes project, with some minor (for the moment) enhancements. It is designed to let IRC users add funny quotes for others to see. A banning system, Web-configurable options (session support, registration, admins, timeout for voting, etc.), and other facilities are planned.
sim (simple instant messaging) is an IRC client specialized for use with bitlbee. It is based on sic (http://suckless.org). It reads commands from standard input and prints all server output to standard output. It also multiplexes all channel traffic into one output, so you don't have to switch to different channel buffers. sim must be customized by editing its source code to insert the correct username, server, password, and identification information.
