Newsd is a standalone local NNTP news server for private newsgroup serving on a single server. It is useful for serving private newsgroup(s) to an intranet or the Internet, and can act as a simple mail gateway. However, it does not interface with other news servers and cannot manage distributed news feeds, i.e. Usenet news.
Bulletin Board News Server is a (relatively) quick NNTP interface for vBulletin. It reads directly from the MySQL DB and is therefore independent of the Web frontend. It doesn't alter read counters, but "forbidden names", name size limitations, user authentication, and anonymous posting (through a "usenet" user) are implemented. Registered users (either in the vboard or through a proprietary pw hash in the config file) can see the email addresses of others, as far as the owners permit it.
Gemini is an advanced, multi-platform, standards compliant, messaging and calendaring client with powerful features for managing mail and news from multiple sources. Gemini provides flexible filtering of messages and protection from junk mail, viruses, and common breaches of netiquette. It has an attractive interface which is easy to use, yet hides nothing from the more advanced user. Additional features include mailing lists as pseudo-newsgroups, message templates, auto-replies, support for multiple identities, HTML, IMAP, SSL, editing of stored messages, spell checking, syntax coloring, and encryption/signing via integration with GnuPG.
Newsbinripper is a set of shell scripts that works as a frontend to nget and other tools (unrar, id3info, file, mogrify, and par2repair) to automate the process of downloading daily updates from usenet, and generate a customizable Web site with galleries or an easy-to-navigate folder structure for standard file browsing.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Internet is a German introduction to the technical aspects of the Internet. This book explains both the low-level protocols IP, ICMP, TCP, and UDP and the high-level protocols SMTP, POP3, IMAP4, NNTP, HTTP, Gopher, FTP, IRC, DICT, Finger, Daytime, DNS, and Whois.
retawq is a multi-threaded Web browser for text terminals on computers with Unix-like operating systems. It is fast, small, nicely configurable, and comfortable; e.g. the low-level network communications are performed in a non-blocking way, and you can keep open as many "virtual windows" as you want and work simultaneously in two of them in a split-screen mode.
