Non Work Related Online Projects I’m Working On

Here are a few of the projects that I work on in my free time.


Media Browser is a free media aggregator plugin for Media Center that takes your recorded, digital, or ripped media and presents it in a simple, easy to use interface. Media Browser prides itself on delivering a fast, intuitive, media rich experience for the whole family.


SABnzbd is a free/open-source cross-platform binary newsreader written in Python.
It simplifies the process of downloading from Usenet dramatically, thanks to its friendly web-based user interface and advanced built-in post-processing options that automatically verify, repair, extract and clean up posts downloaded from Usenet. SABnzbd also has a fully customizable user interface, and offers a complete API for third-party applications to hook into.


hellaVCR is a PHP TV show downloader that integrates with hellanzb, sabnzbd+, or downloads raw NZB files. It uses TVRage to scrape TV show information, theTVDB for artwork, and Newzbin to figure out what to download. hellaVCR contains a command line PHP script to be run by the cron at regular intervals. It also contains a front end web interface to maintain your TV shows. Some advantages to hellaVCR over similar solutions already out there are its written in PHP, the front end interface looks awesome, it supports double episodes (i.e. x01-02), the ability to download an entire series from the start, email a summary of each batch, and tweeting each show as its queued.


Folding@home is a distributed computing project — people from throughout the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer takes the project closer to our goals. Folding@home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.


Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia, written collaboratively by its readers. It is a special type of website designed to make collaboration easy, called a wiki. Many people are constantly improving Wikipedia, making thousands of changes per hour. All of these changes are recorded in article histories and recent changes.
