A simple daytime client. You just run it, and it will set your computer's clock to the correct time, read from an internet time server.


This is a small 'TimeServer' module, in some ways, a complimentary application to FreeTime.
It runs continuously on your computer, and responds to time requests on the udp time port. In combination with FreeTime, you can synchronise a whole network of computers against one 'master' one running this module.


A ChatServ that allows one to one communication with people over the internet. You run it continuously on your computer, and people connect to it when they want to talk to you.


I enhanced the ka9q version of qedit, written by David Croft to support some of the more current RISC OS fetchers - including NewsHound, FreeNews, FreeSMTP, POPstar, ANT and Termite.
