rsyncbackup is a handy tool for scheduled backups using rsync. rsyncbackup lets you easily setup multiple source folders and destinations, both locally, on your iPod or external firewire disk, or at a remote destination using ssh. rsyncbackup has no GUI, but is based on editing configuration files. The script is meant to be run in a crontab, so user interaction is not neccesary. Basic terminal skills are required to use the program.
GODI provides an advanced programming environment for the Objective Caml (O'Caml) language. From INRIA (who created O'Caml) you can get the O'Caml compiler and runtime system, but this is usually not enough to develop applications. You also need libraries, and there are many developers providing them. But it is a lot of work to build and install them. GODI is a system that simplifies this task: It is a framework that automatically builds the O'Caml core system, and additionally installs a growing number of pre-packaged libraries. For a number of reasons, GODI is a source-code based system, and there are no precompiled libraries, but it makes it very simple for everybody to compile them.
The Machine Emulator, or tme, provides a general-purpose framework for computer emulation. The goal is to create a large library of modules, each emulating a specific computer chip, bus, board, etc. These modules offer standard interfaces that allow you to connect them together to create a whole machine emulation with a minimum of effort. It is possible to emulate a Sun 2/120 and a 3/150, both with NetBSD, and a SparcStation 2 with NetBSD or SunOS 4.1.4 (aka Solaris 1.1.2).
