SetiContainer is a C++ class that allows convenient access to all the information in the state files of a SETI@home client. It periodically examines these files and updates its own data members accordingly. Other programs can use this class to extract information about the progress of the client, the found signals, or the work unit being processed. Additional functions offer more advanced info (like the amount of TeraFlops in a work unit, estimated time of completion, etc.). The SetiContainer class is based on the Qt toolkit, and extensively uses Qt's Signal/Slot technique.

UFOClock draws an astronomical clock. From it you can read the time of day, phase of the lunar month, ratio of day to night, time until a solstice or equinox, and time until the end or beginning of twilight. The time of day depends on your location on the surface of the Earth, which you can enter on the command line or in a dotfile in your home directory. Location can be given as latitude/longitude or ZIP code. It is called UFO clock because it sort of looks like crop circles. It is based on Sundial by George Williams. It requires GLUT installed to run and the NOVAS library to build.
