Speedpad is a small and portable ncurses-powered tool to test, train, and increase typing speed on arbitrary text input. It is designed for intermediate-to-advanced level typists and assumes that you have already learned how to touch type. It does not use lessons, single words, or other synthetic stuff. It supports tab expansion, auto indentation, and syntax to train on code. It features a reference speed robot and supports CPS, CPM, WPM, PPM, and CPH/KPH metrics. It shows detailed statistics about speed and helps find and eliminate frequent typos. Stats are dumped to standard output in a machine-readable format after completion, and can be piped into gnuplot.
WormTrack is a network IDS that allows detection of scanning worms on a LAN by monitoring anomalous ARP traffic. This allows detection of scanning threats on the network without having privileged access on a switch to set up a dedicated monitor port. It does not require constant updating of the rules engine to address new threats.
tcpdump prints a description of the contents of packets on a network interface which match a given boolean expression. It can also be run with the -w flag, which causes it to save the packet data to a file for later analysis, and/or with the -r flag, which causes it to read from a saved packet file rather than to read packets from a network interface. In all cases, only packets which match the expression will be processed by tcpdump. tcpdump logs more than just TCP, IP, or ethernet packets, but has a whole suite of decoders, including ones for USB.
Python System Monitor (Psymon) is a cross-platform task and performance monitor. It features global process monitoring, system load history (CPU, memory, network, and disks), disk information, network connections, detailed information and CPU, and memory percentage history per process.
2x2 (Two by Two) is a multiplication puzzle game. Your goal is to solve a multiplication puzzle in which all digits are replaced by letters. To achieve the best score, you should solve the puzzle with a minimal number of errors and in minimal time. 2x2 is easy to learn, but hard to master. It is simple, smart, and addicting. It will allow you to test and improve your math skills, calculation skills, logic, and even knowledge of probability theory. With a large number of possible combinations, no two games will be the same.
