setirotate automatically spawns the SETI@Home commandline client, rotating it through work units in a work unit cache. You can configure the number of work units to store, the number of processes to run simultaneously, the number of simultaneous result-upload/workunit-download transfers, the time interval within which its allowed to perform said transfers, and the timeout interval for when a transfer fails. It will immediately start working on a work unit when the previous one finishes, while uploading the newly finished result (if the upload interval permits) in parallel. It strives to always keep something running.

Henry is an educational astrometry utility for performing calculations based on a Hertzsprung-Russel (H-R) diagram, such as spectroscopic parallax for working out the distance to a given star. Unlike many other solutions that use in-built images for their H-R diagrams, Henry plots data directly from the European Space Agency's HIPPARCOS catalog, allowing increased accuracy while also giving students greater room to experiment by exploring the catalogue themselves.
