I've spent large amounts of time on the Internet Relay Chat. I contribute to the IRCv3 Working Group, which aims to extend the 30-year-old protocol with modern features.
At the same time, I collect information about the past and present of IRC. I have a dedicated IRC documentation repository where I collect documentation about the software & the protocol – including the extension list and the family tree of IRC servers.
My writings page has a few articles documenting various bits and pieces I've written myself.
(I also archive the software itself on my laptop; not many clients, though, mostly just servers and services. It's a shame how FTP sites tend to go down...)
Also, some scripts for the Eggdrop bot: g_cap.tcl for authenticating to SASL-enabled networks, and g_ts6.tcl implementing the TS6 server-server protocol because why the hell not
I suck at updating this list, so you might find my code repository's readme.txt a bit more informative. But here are some things I'd worked in the past:
mpris – control MPRISv2-compatible music players
dbus-name – list and monitor DBus service names
kc – juggle multiple Kerberos ccaches
pklist – dump a parsable list of Kerberos 5 tickets – useful in shell scripts
getpaste – view Zerobin posts on the command line
dh – do a D-H key exchange over IRCtreeify – format any path-like input as a tree
– maintains a centralized list of user login sessions (kinda like
– an RFC 4819 subsystem for OpenSSH servers; used by SecureCRT's "Public Key Assistant" (requires
– parse OpenSSH's
authorized_keys files, with support for options and future key types
lib/sexp.py – parse S-expressions in Python (based on Rivest's original C code). This can parse the private keys stored by OTR.
denettalk – break Nettalk "NCTCTC001" chat encryption (based on crypto code by an anonymous author)
And a whole bunch of other programs and scripts.
All code released under WTFPL v2 unless noted otherwise.
