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.
mysqlblasy is a Perl script for automating MySQL database backups. It uses "mysqldump" for dumping mysql databases to the files sytem. It was written with automated usage in mind. For example, it is silent during operation, and only produces noise on errors/problems. It rotates backups automatically to prevent the backup disk from getting full when the administrator is on vacation (or is lazy).
MySQLBackup is a script that allows you to make date-time stamped backups of individual MySQL databases. Each database backup is a gzip compressed SQL script that can be restored and imported via the mysql command line tool. The tables of each database being backed up are locked, preserving data integrity. While this does temporarily prevent writes to the tables, the impact is reduced by backing up each database separately. This script backs up all databases accessible to the mysql user that it is configured to use. That means this script is useful to the sysadmin as well as to regular users who wish to maintain backups of their own MySQL databases.
NASM is an 80x86 assembler designed for portability and modularity. It supports a range of object file formats including Linux a.out and ELF, COFF, Microsoft 16-bit OBJ, Win32/64, and Apple Mach-O. It will also output plain binary files. Its syntax is designed to be simple and easy to understand, similar to Intel's but less complex. It supports all currently known opcodes, and has advanced macro capability. It includes a disassembler as well.
NNTPSwitch is a Linux NNTP content router. It's aimed at high-performance news servers for ISPs and Usenet resellers. NNTPSwitch forwards client connections to multiple backend servers to get its actual articles. Depending on the backend server type, all NNTP commands and extensions are supported, including (remote) authorization. Accounting is supported in a user-friendly matter for data limited NNTP connections.
