Best used as an optional color visual mode to a regular command line shell, vshnu is handy for powerful directory listing and navigation, Unix command assembly, special actions on file types, and fileset handling.

The Enhanced TightVNC Viewer, SSVNC, adds encryption security to VNC connections. The package provides a GUI for Windows, MacOS X, and Unix that automatically starts up an STUNNEL SSL tunnel for SSL or ssh/plink for SSH connections to any VNC server and then launches the VNC Viewer to use the encrypted tunnel. On Unix and MacOS X, a VNC viewer with many new features is provided. The short name for this project is "ssvnc", for SSL/SSH VNC viewer.
Sprog is a graphical tool that anyone can use to build programs by plugging parts together. In Sprog jargon, the parts are known as 'gears' and they are assembled to make a 'machine'. Gears are selected from a palette and dragged onto the Sprog workbench, where they can be connected together. Options can be set using a properties dialog on each gear. When assembly is complete, the machine can be run, reconfigured, or re-run.

bluelock.pl is designed to lock a display or terminal once a Bluetooth device (like a cell phone) is out of range. The script queries the RSSI (signal strength) of a Bluetooth device. Once the RSSI passes above a certain threshold a timer is started, and once the timer expires a locking program is run.
