Chatkeep

Chatkeep is a essentially a storehouse for your Google chats. It allows you to store your favourite chats in the form of snippets, allowing you to find and relive your memories without the effort of going through billions of lines of "Hey, What's up! Nothing much!". It also serves as a backup in case you accidentally delete those chats from GTalk.

Nautiluf Facebook Uploader (obsolete)

Nautilus Facebook Uploader (nfuploader) was a desktop application allowing for easy upload of pictures to facebook. It allowed for simple right-click uploads, batch photo uploads, creating new albums, etc. I had made this back when facebook photo uploading was not up to the mark for linux, and it's not really needed anymore since coming of easy-to-use web based uploaders.

SMSS (obsolete)

SMSS was a desktop application to send free text messages (SMS) via online gateways such as Way2SMS. It allowed for bulk messages involving multiple recipients, as well as a google contact sync. I have stopped maintaining this project as websites such as Way2SMS discourage such things and constantly keep changing their APIs every few months.
