PicMonger is a GUI-driven app that scans a specified Usenet newsgroup for binary attachments. Any attachments encoded with uuencode or in MIME-base64 format are decoded into the current working directory. Lists of frequently used servers and groups are saved on a per-user basis and easily accessed/edited via the GUI. HTML preview pages (like contact sheets) can be automatically generated on the fly. PicMonger also remembers where you were between sessions so scanning resumes where you left off.

signature produces dynamic signatures for livening up your e-mail and news postings. It enables you to sign your messages with a different sig every time. signature allows you to define a signature template containing static and placeholder text, the latter of which will be dynamically replaced with the output of fortune(6) or any other program whenever a signature is required. As an alternative, you can also create your own quote file containing your favourite tag lines.

zfec is a fast, portable, and programmable implementation of erasure coding. It includes a C library, a Python library, and a command-line tool. Erasure coding is also known as "forward error correction", which is the generation of redundant blocks of information such that if some blocks are lost then the original data can be recovered from the remaining blocks. The RAID-5 algorithm is an erasure code, but while RAID-5 can recover from the loss of any one element, zfec can be parameterized to choose in advance the number of elements whose loss it can tolerate.
