Condo

[August 2018 update] Condo was my very modest contribution to envisioning a future where we would use containers instead of VMs and dedicate them to specific, isolated tasks. Less than a year after I created Condo, Docker was released and I shelved my amateurish attempt. Now, reading the text below, I have mixed feelings: a good attempt, but no quite ambitious enough.

S2ajax

[August 2018 Update] Feel free to user S2ajax if you are looking for something lightweight.

[August 2018 update] Classical message boards are now a thing of the past. Do not get me wrong! I am still a regular of some sites that use vBulletin (https://forums.watchuseek.com) but these are not technically evolving anymore.
