  • Kerberos is a hub owner tool. It can be used as a substitute for many scripts on a hub. It can check for useless files (windows and program files directories), sick porn, large VOB�s, min/max slots/shares, etc.
  • DirectConnect's Big Brother is a client checking bot for DirectConnect networks. It logs in to a DirectConnect Hub as a normal client. It can download filelists, check for forbidden files, client functionality (eg: answering search requests). Every detail is stored in a MySQL database.
  • DC Hub-Link allows multiple Direct Connect Hubs to be linked so that users connected to any of those hubs see all users on all linked hubs as part of a larger virtual hub. This is done by having a script in each Hub that interacts with the Hub-Link Bot. The Bot signs on to each of the Hubs as a "user" and relays activity between the hubs.

  • TTHSpeed is a simple program I wrote that averages all of the hashing speed values in DC++'s system.log.  For it to work, you need to have system logging turned on (File | Settings | Logs | Log System Messages).  Place tthspeed.exe in your DC++ log directory and run it.  It also keeps track of past Max / Avg / Min values in a log file.

  • Bitzi Bitcollider Utility.  "Bitcollider is a small program you can run on your own computer to reliably identify and describe files on your machine. When run with a specific file as input, this program does two major things:
    * It examines the file, calculating a distinctive digital fingerprint, or bitprint, and takes note of some other identifying information that can be extracted from the file, like file length and the local filename.
    * It launches your web browser to do a lookup at our website, submitting this identifying information as the search terms."

  • TTHSum is a simple command line that will generate a TTH checksums (root of the THEX hash tree).   You will need Visual Studio 2003 to compile it.  One can get precompiled binaries here.
