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.
Open MPI is a project that originated as the merging of technologies and resources from several other projects (FT- MPI, LA-MPI, LAM/MPI, and PACX-MPI) in order to build the best MPI library available. A completely new MPI-2 compliant implementation, Open MPI offers advantages for system and software vendors, application developers, and computer science researchers. It is easy to use, and runs natively on a wide variety of operating systems, network interconnects, and batch/scheduling systems.
MyActiveRecord is a PHP implementation of Martin Fowler's Active Record pattern, as popularised by Ruby on Rails. Objects are retrieved via static methods of the base class, resulting in clean and simple relational/object mapping. It's MySQL only, meaning the whole thing is contained within a single class and none of the overhead of database abstraction is incurred. There is close to zero configuration. Even relationships are inferred, although this does mean sticking to some simple database naming rules.
Targa reader/writer is an implementation of Targa reading and writing code that supports 8-bit colormapped, grayscale, 16- and 24-bit truecolor BGR, and 32-bit BGRA, in uncompressed and RLE compressed formats. It honors Targa's "image descriptor" bits, performs appropriate error checking, comes with convenience functions for converting and manipulating the image in memory, and overall has a very simple API.
Frunk is a simple program that detects and reports interface status changes using SNMP. Basically, it detects if one or more of a set of pre-configured interfaces are up or down and reports the fact by emailing alerts. It is good for monitoring several interfaces on several devices, normally routers, and checking for link failures. It also optionally creates and constantly updates an HTML document containing information on those interfaces which are down.
