Rapid Photo Downloader is an application for professional and amateur photographers, designed for use on the Linux desktop. It can download photos and videos from multiple cameras, memory cards, and portable storage devices simultaneously. It provides many flexible, user-defined options for subfolder creation, photo and video renaming, and backup.
BlueProximity helps add a little more security to the desktop. It does so by detecting a certain Bluetooth device, most likely a mobile phone, and keeping track of its distance. If it is moved away from the computer and the distance is above a certain level (no measurement in meters is possible) for a given time, it automatically locks the desktop (or starts any other shell command wanted). Once away, the computer awaits its master's return: if the device is nearer than a given level for a set time, the computer unlocks without any interaction (or starts any other shell command wanted).
Gringotts is a small utility that allows you to jot down sensitive data (passwords, PINs, small files, etc.) in an easy-to-read, easy-to-access, and most of all very secure form. It lets the user choose from among eight strong encryption algorithms (RIJNDAEL-128, RIJNDAEL-256, SERPENT, TWOFISH, CAST-256, SAFER+, LOKI97, 3DES), two hashing algorithms (SHA1, RIPEMD 160), and two compression techniques (ZLib and BZip2) with four compression ratios. It allows the user to use any file or an entire floppy disk as a password, as an alternative to the usual text string.
