MailShare – a freeware program used to exchange files in peer2mail technology, through free mailboxes.

This way of file exchange is much more secure than the direct exchange method of peer2peer files. MailShare divides the files into smaller parts of the so-called party. Individual pieces are sent to your e-mail account. After downloading all the parts, they are merged into the original file. This solution allows users to store files in an email account and easily download them from any computer.

MailShare programmers also took care of the convenience and ease of use of the program. The interface is friendly and its operation is very intuitive. The wide range of options included in the program makes it easier for even novice users to work with MailShare.

Features:
– Simple, clear and understandable user interface
– Modern design
– A comprehensive help system
– Free technical support on the Internet MailShare forum
– Downloading files from two mailboxes simultaneously (for a single file)
– Validating downloaded files and automatically fixing if errors are detected
– Compatibility with HashCode programs: MailShare, MoorHunt (aa-ah), Ygoow
– Simultaneous sending files from an unlimited number of boxes
– A clear system of statistics of the amount of data downloaded and sent
– A modern module for updating applications and libraries of mailboxes
– Support for POP3 / IMAP / SMTP protocols

The last version of MailShare 2.1.5 was released in 2012.

Quassel – a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client, meaning that one (or multiple) client(s) can attach to and detach from a central core — much like the popular combination of screen and a text-based IRC client such as WeeChat, but graphical.

Re-attaching your client will show your IRC session in the same state as you left it in (plus whatever happened while you were gone), and this even when you re-attach from a different location. In addition, Quassel IRC can be used like a traditional client, with providing both client and core functionality in one binary. This so-called “Monolithic Client” completely hides the distributed nature, so for a purely local installation, Quassel IRC can be setup very easily.

Quassel IRC is developed for and tested on Linux®, Windows®, and MacOS X®. It should also run on any other platform that is supported by the Qt library. Third-party mobile clients for Android and iOS also exist.

Quassel IRC will have all the features you’d expect from an IRC client nowadays. It also innovates in many areas. For example, the GUI features a dockable nicklist and topic bar, or you can arrange your channel and query buffers in default or custom views, which are also dockable. This means that you can arrange your GUI as you please. The architecture allows for other innovations, such as on-demand creation of log files in custom formats from the backlog.

The core development team currently consists of the following people:
– Manuel “Sputnick” Nickschas
– Marcus “EgS” Eggenberger

bti – sends a tweet message to twitter.com.

bti provides an easy way to send tweet messages directly from the command line or a script. It reads the message on standard input and uses the account and password settings either from the command line options or from a config file to deliver the message.

Besides sending messages bti also allows one to see one’s friends’, a group’s or a specific user’s timeline, the public timeline, replies to messages, and direct messages.

Its primary focus is to allow you to log everything that you type into a bash shell, in a crazy, “this is what I’m doing right now!” type of way, letting the world follow along with you constant moving between directories and refreshing your email queue to see if there’s anything interesting going on.

The account and password can be stored in a configuration file in the users home directory in a file named .bti

The application is written by Greg Kroah-Hartman and Amir Mohammad Saied.
