Savepower is a simple and effective daemon for the cpufreq userspace governor. It is designed for workstations and servers, where all actions have to be done at the fastest speed, and after some idle time, maximum power savings are desired. It increases clock frequency to the maximum immediately on busy CPUs, and reduces the clock to the lowest frequency after a period of inactivity. The polling frequency is 1 second and can easily be shortened.
SwarmTv is a command line broad-catching program that downloads selected torrents/NZB's from an RSS or Twitter feed and puts them in a directory for your torrent program to download. The torrents to download are selected using filters that look at the name, size, and episode/season of the torrent. A mechanism is in place to prevent double downloads. Swarmtv can even send an email when a new episode is found.
Multi Threaded Daemon - enhanced is a class that implements a daemon that can spawn multiple parallel threads. It includes a sample app to monitor a "queue" directory on the filesystem, and spawns up to "N" child processes to parse individual files from it. It is an enhanced version of the original Multithreaded Daemon class written by Benoit Perroud. This version provides several robustness improvements, adds support for handling signals (SIGTERM, SIGHUP), and a unique PID file to avoid starting multiple instances.
