My internet chess server connection mode for Emacs, ics.el, is described on its own page.
Also included on that page is a plugin for the KDE music player, amaroK, which will feed the currently playing track to ics.el to update the player's finger notes.
I have put together a little script which will open a file in any SCID chess database instance existing on the current display which has spare slots. (In similar fashion to the -remote command line option to netscape). It uses the Tk [send] function to communicate with the SCID interpreter, so is almost certainly specific to Scid running under the X Window System (typically this will be under Unix/Linux systems, although it's possible that it would also work in Scid under cygwin or MacOS X environments). It is developed/tested against SCID 3.6.1. It makes the assumption that the scid executable is in the PATH.
You can download sc_remote.
