BART Tracker reports on arriving San Francisco area BART trains in real time, using a system tray icon. It uses BART's new "Estimated Arrivals" or "BART System Status" feature, which reports on the current up-to-the-minute status of arriving trains at every BART station. It requires Java 6.
VeriTAR [Veri(fy)TAR] is a command-line utility that verifies the MD5 sums of files within a tar archive. Due to the limitations of the tar ("ustar") format, the MD5 sums are retrieved from a separate file and are checked against the MD5 sums of the files within the tar archive. The process takes place without actually exctracting the files. It works even with corrupted tar archives. The program carries on to the next file within the archive, skipping the damaged parts. At the moment, this relies on internal functions of Python's tarfile module.
The Privilege Separation patches for Apache HTTPD and 'mod_dav' address the problem that an Apache WebDAV server can only write files as the non-privileged Web server user (usually something like 'nobody' or 'www'). The patches address this shortcoming in a secure way by adding privilege separation to the Apache Web server (conceptually similar to SSH privilege separation). A privilege-separated Apache can be used to provide secure WebDAV write access to ~user directories and allow the use of per-user Unix quotas. When combined with mod_ssl, it provides a convenient and secure remote file serving system, as WebDAV clients are seamlessly integrated into both Windows and Mac OS X.
Gizmo Daemon is a program for controlling your computer based on events from input devices. It has built-in support for all Linux input devices, including keyboards with special keys, joysticks, remotes, dials, and more. It lets you control applications, launch programs, change the system volume, switch desktops, and directly control Amarok. It can visualize system events (such as Amarok sound output, CPU usage, etc.) on capable devices (keyboards with LEDs, Griffin PowerMate, etc.). It also features support for LIRC and RF based remote controls, allowing it to have per-application key mappings and configurable sensitivity settings.
