SASqlConsole is a unified SQL console based on SQLAlchemy. It features pretty colors, intelligent formatting of output, convenient CSV output, a consistent interface across all backends supported by SQLAlchemy, persistent readline history, and tab completion of all tables and columns and a selection of SQL keywords.
Simulated annealing is a computational algorithm for optimization. It mimics the physical process of thermal annealing in which a metal is heated and then slowly cooled to settle into a highly ordered crystal structure. For common metals, the lowest energy state is already known. But the method is useful for other problems where the best state is not known and exhaustively searching all possible states is impractical. The method is applied by modeling the problem as a physical system with structure, energy, and temperature. This Python module implements simulated annealing so that it can be easily applied to a variety of problems. An example program is include to perform simulated annealing of the traveling salesman problem.
Salut à Toi (or SàT: "Hi to You") is an XMPP/Jabber client with multi-frontends. You can use it on a desktop (Wix), with a console interface (Primitivus), as a command-line tool (jp), or on the Web (Libervia). A plugin architecture is used to make it modular. With SàT, you can perform all the expected XMPP functions (instant messaging, multi-user chat, file transfert, etc.), but you can also use your email client (MUA) to read and send your XMPP messages, play games, do microblogging, pipe Unix command results, make scripts, etc.

terminal_colors is a tool to display a terminal color chart for 8, 16, 88, and 256 color terminals. It provides all the functionality of the various similar scripts found around the Web with some additional bells and whistles. It automatically detects 8, 16, 88, and 256 color capabilities (via ncurses) and displays the appropriate color charts. It can display the colors as blocks or (2D) cubes, optionally with color values overlaid in int or hex values. It can show the full rgb text string as well. It can also show the display with a vertical (default) or horizontal orientation. It has the option of additional padding and supports -h --help as well. It also works as a utility for converting between 256 and 88 color values.
