Two CodePlex Projects of Note

I can't remember what sites I heard of these projects, but they both sound really cool.

The first one is Crack.NET, which is basically a way to hack probe the contents of another .NET app (WinForms or WPF) while it's running. You can also run IronPython script against the app's object model. That's just crazy!

The other one is nComet. Basically it's way to push data to a client, rather than doing silly AJAXy-like polling architectures. I've seen this done (the idea, not using nComet specifically) at one client I was at and while it can be tricky to pull off it opens up a lot of possibilities.
