burnCDDA is a console frontend to cdrdao, cdrecord, MPlayer, mpg321, oggdec, mppdec, flac, normalize, and mp3_check. It can be used to create audio CDs from an M3U playlist (the playlist format of XMMS and amaroK) or from files inside a directory. It supports MP3, OGG Vorbis, Musepack, FLAC, WMA, M4A, and WAV files, and it might be the easiest way to copy an audio CD.
Podget is a simple podcast aggregator optimized for running as a scheduled background job (i.e. cron). It features support for downloading podcasts from RSS and XML feeds, for sorting the podcasts into folders and categories, for importing podcast URLs from iTunes PCAST files and OPML lists, automatic M3U and ASX playlist creation, and automatic cleanup of old podcasts. It also features automatic UTF-16 conversion for podcasts hosted on Windows servers.
DVDripTools is a collection of scripts that operate DVD ripping tools. It consists of ripdvd, which creates an MKV, OGM, or MP4 file container very easily; ripdvdcrop, which detects the cropping to use when ripping a DVD; and ripdvdtest, which performs a ripping test of a few seconds.
Trojan scan is a simple shell script that allows for simple but relatively effective checking for trojans, rootkits and other malware that may be using your server and network for unwanted (and possibly illegal) purposes. It works by listing all processes that use the Internet with the lsof command (using -Pni flags). This list is then transformed into signatures in the form of process_name:port_number:user. These signatures then are matched against the allowed process defined in the configuration. If any signatures of running processes are found that do not match the allowed signatures, an email report is sent including ps, ls, and optional lsof output.
upnp2mrtg is a simple add-on for the MRTG (Multi Router Traffic Grapher). It can be used to monitor incoming and outgoing bytes of the external interface of the FritzBox DSL router. upnp2mrtg is a command line tool to gather statistics from an upnp enabled FritzBox DSL router. It is a lightweight shell-script for use with MRTG, so no underlying external software (with the exception of netcat) or libraries are required. Using bash-networking instead of netcat is also supported.
vlock is a program to lock one or more sessions on the Linux console. This is especially useful for Linux machines which have multiple users with access to the console. One user may lock his or her session(s) while still allowing other users to use the system on other virtual consoles. If desired, the entire console may be locked and virtual console switching disabled.
LBackup is a simple backup system aimed at systems administrators who require reliable backups with minimum fuss. It is configured with configuration files, and the backup is started from the command line. It has been tested for over 10 years. Backups can be to local media, or to remote media via one or more networks. The networks may be private LANs, WANs, or sets of untrusted public networks such as the Internet.
envbot is an advanced modular IRC bot coded in bash. Features include SSL, IPv6, modularity (with several good modules already), transport modules (including OpenSSL, GnuTLS, netcat, etc.), loading/unloading/reloading of modules at runtime, rehashing configuration at runtime, advanced access control, and much more.
