STMX is a high-performance Common Lisp library for composable Software Transactional Memory (STM), a concurrency control mechanism aimed at making concurrent programming easier to write and understand. Instead of traditional lock-based programming, one programs with atomic memory transactions: if a memory transaction returns normally it is committed. If it signals an error, it is rolled back. Transactions can safely run in parallel in different threads, are re-executed from the beginning in case of conflicts or if consistent reads cannot be guaranteed, and effects of a transaction are not visible from other threads until committed. This gives freedom from deadlocks, automatic rollback on failure, and aims to resolve the tension between granularity and concurrency.
MOTDstat (Message Of The Day - System Status) will dynamically generate the /etc/motd file with current information about system status and usage. Using crontab, the script will periodically display the status of system resources and services. The original message of the day will be stored in the /etc/motd.orig file. Configuring an email address, you'll receive notifications about the following issues with configurable warning and critical limits: high CPU load, exceeding disk space, intensive usage of swap space, a specific process or network service not running, NTP not synchronized, and too many messages in the mail queue.
MailChariot's only mission is to get your incoming email (for example from /var/spool/mail), filter it through a spam filter, and put it into a spam or ham mailbox. If you don't agree with the spam filter's decision, you can move it to the notspam or notham mailbox and MailChariot will mark the message as ham or spam respectively. This design is mail client agnostic. It is ideal for use on shared hosts where the provided spam filtering is not effective enough.
Event is a simple PHP-based software package for creating a simple Web page for upcoming events. Event supports an unlimited number of events, each with its own mini-site, each of which is configured by a single text file. Event is designed to run in constrained environments, and without needing write permissions from the Web user or database access. Event supports localization into additional languages.
bmake is a program designed to simplify the maintenance of other programs. Its input is a list of specifications as to the files upon which programs and other files depend. If no -f makefile makefile option is given, bmake will try to open 'makefile' and then 'Makefile' in order to find the specifications.
