After fiddling around trying to get FreeBASIC 0.23 installed on Fedora 16, I figured I would post a quick guide to hopefully save someone else some time.
Open your console of choice and enter the following ($ = console prompt):
Replaces desired words from chat messages with whatever you want. Uses regular expressions so advanced usages are possible. Automatically kicks players who are filtered (configurable amount) and notifies staff (players with access to the kick command).
This is a small plugin for Bukkit that performs certain actions based on a player's location. Currently supported actions include changing the rank of a player and giving a player item(s). No new actions are planned at this time but if you have an idea for an action let me know and I'll look into integrating it.
Always use the wiki for the most up to date documentation.
Fbconfig is a small library that packs a big punch. Never worry about distributing a configuration file again, because with fbconfig it is generated with the first program run and stored in the "correct" place for each platform. The on disk format is plain-text xml, easy to modify by hand if your user desires. Due to the simple api with fbconfig you can get up and running in no time, and if you need to do the advanced you can access the raw xml but this shouldn't be needed in 99% of cases.
Google's Facebook killer launched recently and has set the techie world into a frenzy. Some liken it to the ill-fated and oft-despised Buzz service, but I think Google has a winner with Plus. After using Facebook for these past few years there are a couple differences between the two services but I'm here to help you set up your Plus account to get maximum enjoyment.
