This is a list of much older projects that are unmaintained and likely to be broken.
I’m maintaining the list mostly as a reminder for myself but also in case they’re ever useful for historical reasons. The history of RSS 1.0 and FOAF have both had write-ups in Two Bit History recently.
My original list of FOAF related projects is still available.

Quake 2 tools / Q2Java
In 1999/2000 I was playing with modding Quake 2, developing some Java tools for working with game files, tinkering with embedding a JVM into the engine and then later contributing to Q2Java which was an amazing piece of work by Barry Pederson to port most of the game logic into Java.
