divine will use ARP requests to look for hosts that are always up in the networks that you frequently use your laptop in and then set the IP configuration including /etc/resolv.conf and write proxy settings in /etc/proxy. A perl script to edit your netscape 4 preferences is included. You can also run a custom script for each network to edit /etc/printcap or /etc/issue or whatever you feel like. The ARP method is much quicker than the "ping" method that other solutions use.
COSA and SRP are synchronous serial boards for ISA bus which have two channels. Each channel can be set up to one of the X.21, V.24, V.35 and V.36 hardware interfaces. The Linux kernel driver and user-space tools serve for setting up and using the COSA and SRP boards under Linux. It allows you to use it with the following link-level protocols: Cisco HDLC , synchronous PPP, or as the frame-based character device.
CHIRP is a tool for automating the creation of configuration trees for Cricket.

When a network device is identified, CHIRP dynamically associates a driver with it to produce the configuration file.
Butterfly is a timing system designed for environments in which time spent on the Internet is charged for.

bcnu is a Web-based system management tool which delivers information on the status of networked systems in a simple and easy-to-use manner. It uses a web browser to display information about hosts in a tabular form. Historical information can be held indefinitely, and there is a powerful query tool available to interrogate it. Client systems can run an agent which logs information back to a central system. An agent scheduler is integrated to allow agents to be run at different intervals. Standard agents include ftp, http, disk space, logfiles, processes, and more.
The Autofs CD Changer patch allows you to automount the different slots of a CD changer. It automatically changes the slots and remounts CDs as needed, giving the impression that they are all simultaneously mounted. It's not much use for multisession stuff, but works fine for mp3 lists that span many CDs.
