queXC is a Web-based data cleaning and coding/classification system that takes a data file (such as data collected from a questionnaire) and cleans the text input fields by spacing them and spell checking them. It allows operators to code text fields to existing coding schemes, or to create a coding scheme on the fly. Multiple operators can code and clean simultaneously, with the ability to assign operators to do particular codes. The queXC system includes some coding schemes created from ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics) data. It can be used as an open source replacement for Nvivo in some situations.
Austrumi ("east", Austrum Latvijas Linukss) is a bootable live CD Linux distribution. It is based on Slackware. It was created and is currently being maintained by a group of programmers from the Latgale region of Latvia. It requires limited system resources and can run on any Intel-compatible system with a CD-ROM installed or from a flash drive. The entire operating system and all the applications run from RAM, making Austrumi faster than larger distributions that must read from a disk, and allowing the boot medium to be removed after the operating system starts.
