qmailcheck looks for new mail in multiple IMAP mail boxes. If you get a lot of mail and split the messages into separate boxes (typically on the server side using procmail or sieve), then checking all the boxes by hand can be tedious. QMailcheck displays the results in a formatted list, highlighting the newest items. When new mail arrives in a folder, it is capable of raising the window, issuing a system notification, flashing the LED (on phones only), and vibrating (on phones only), all on a per-folder basis.
Forban is a P2P file sharing application for link-local and local area networks. Forban works independently from the Internet and uses only the local area capabilities to announce, discover, search, or share files. Forban relies on HTTP and is opportunistic, meaning that it replicates any files of interest seen in its proximity. The Forban protocols are minimalistic to ease the production of other implementations.
