TorrentWatch-X is a Web-based tool to automate BitTorrent downloads. This is a fork of the torrentwatch project, now also with NMT support. It is meant to run on Linux and Mac OS X with different BitTorrent clients (for now, only Transmission is supported directly) and make it work in all Web browsers. It supports RSS feeds from a few torrent sites that offer TV shows. It can save torrent files in any folder, so any torrent client can pick it up. It can tell Transmission to save data in any folder. It can tell Transmission to stop when a certain ratio is reached. Authentication with Transmission is supported. Your own RSS feed can be added.
Sentinella is a desktop application that monitors your system activity and, when a condition is met, takes the action that you've chosen. While monitoring your CPU, memory, hard drive, and network usage, Sentinella can be programmed to take specific actions when setpoints for utilization or time are met. It can power off, reboot, or hibernate your system, kill an active process, throw an alarm, or execute any command. Sentinella integrates perfectly with the main desktop enviroments (KDE, GNOME, XFCE, and others) and works under many Unix systems.
