Some of the projects that at some point seemed like a good enough idea to actually stagger from the back of an envelope to somewhere almost within sight of usability. Or at least some of the ones that I'm currently willing to admit to.
- DNS trouble shooting for beginners: an end suers guide to trouble shooting and recognising DNS issues
- Hacking My Cloud: Adventures in using a WD "My Cloud" for a lot more than just a NAS device.
- Power DNS Shell : A remote command shell implemented over DNS user PowerDNS
- Credential free, anonymous system access : How to set up anonymous shell/remote access to Ubuntu systems in a hopefulyl not entirely insane fashion.
Yet another how to chroot a user guide : If you're going
to provide public access to a system it should probably be in a
- lynx.scramworks.net: A public access lynx client. Allowing text based web browsing via telnet from anywhere. There used to be a number of these around the place, but I think this is the last one remaining.
- Scylla Mail: An early project done with Shonky Internet. To provide an odd sort of mail service. Somewhat different from most, but apparently useful. - Currently out of service
- Shrnk: Yet another URL shortener, though with far less predictable ( though slightly longer ) generated URLs. Also with the ability to have links expire or be removed on demand, so slightly different from others out there. Once again this was created in collaboration with Shonky. They're responsible for sorting out the terms and everything that'll make it look nice.
- dnsbox: Another Shonky project, just a nice simple installation of gnudip, though with some of the HTML fixed.
- Rasputin: Getting slightly concerned about how search engines (mainly Google) could gather far too much data from what you search for, we thought it might be handy to make your search history just a little bit more random. Of course shortly after this we found "TrackMeNot" but having written it there's no reason to take it down. May yet be useful again.
- Untrusted - ID: More for the untrusted project, an anonymous non-authenticating OpenID identity server.
