Response to: What doe this project do?

I've found this to be true of many web sites, as well, many of which I've visited because they are advertised in /. sigs.
Click on a link, and it takes you to a page that says, "Version 0.0.0.0.0.9 is now out! It fixes the memory corruption bug and allows you to save more of your configuration settings. Download it now!".
No description of what it does.
Not a clue.
And, of course, it has some totally incomprehensible name like "Mordraky" or "Big Sparrow" that also gives no clue as to what it does.
