Analog PHP is a short and simple logging package for PHP 5.3+ based around the idea of using closures for configurability and extensibility. It functions as a static class, but you can completely control the handling of log messages through closures (aka anonymous functions), and it also comes with a dozen pre-written handlers. It is well-documented, with examples for each type of log handler, and ultra-concise. The core is literally only 43 lines of clear, non-obfuscated code, and the whole is only a fraction of the size of comparable packages (for example, 293 total lines vs 1021 for Monolog).
Archipel is a solution to manage and supervise virtual machines. No matter if you have a few locally on your computer or thousands through data centers, Archipel is a central solution to manage them all. You can use all libvirt-supported virtualization engines like KVM, Xen, OpenVZ, or VMWare. You can perform all basic virtualization commands and many other things like live migration, VMCasts, packages, etc. Archipel uses XMPP for all communication. There is no Web service or custom protocol. You just need at least one XMPP server, like eJabberd, to start playing with it. This allows Archipel to work completely in real time. You never have to refresh the user interface. You'll be notified as soon as something happens. You can even use your favorite chat clients to command your infrastructure. You can open a chat conversation with your virtual machine and say things like "How are you today?" or "Hey, please reboot."
District Builder is a software application designed to give the public transparent, accessible, and easy-to-use mapping tools to draw the boundaries of their communities or to generate redistricting plans for their state and localities. The drawing of electoral districts is among the least transparent processes in democratic governance. All too often, redistricting authorities maintain power by obstructing public participation. The resulting districts embody the goals of politicians to the detriment of the representational interests of communities and the public at large. With District Builder, the public has the capacity to create and submit district plans for municipal, county, and state governments, support redistricting competitions, and keep the entire process open. In addition to legislative redistricting, District Builder's flexibility accommodates school districts, police districts, and many other redistricting needs.
ErlyMUD is a rather minimalistic MUD server, written in Erlang and making use of the excellent OTP libraries. The aim is to have solid support for exploration and roleplaying, within a highly fault-tolerant environment where system crashes or reboots are more of an exotic curiosity than a commonplace thing.
FlickrDownload is a program that runs from the command that allows you to download all of your photos and the associated metadata from Flickr. The metadata is stored in an XML file and HTML files are generated so that you have a fully-functioning static copy of your Flickr account on your local computer. All data is stored in an open format for the long-term preservation of your data.
