ColorChip is a class for working with color in a more convenient manner than the basic RGB and Hexadecimal triplets often encountered in programming, especially Web-oriented programming. It allows you to define a color using RGB, HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value) or a Hexadecimal string. ColorChip objects have properties for all three of these color models, as well as methods for adjusting both RGB and HSV values. These methods automatically update all of the object's properties. Additional methods exist for getting color compliments, triads, and the nearest Web-safe color.
Marathon is a GUI test tool that allows you to play and record scripts against a Java Swing UI. It's written in Java, and uses Python and Ruby as its scripting language (the emphasis being on an extremely simple, readable syntax that customers/testers/analysts feel comfortable with). Marathon includes a recorder, editor, player, and debugger to simplify working with test scripts.
SecureSkat is a peer-to-peer implementation of the German card game Skat. The program negotiates participating players and game sessions over an arbitrary IRC network (Internet Relay Chat). Neither a trusted third-party (dealer) nor a centralized game server is necessary. All critical operations, e.g. shuffle of the deck, are performed using advanced cryptographic techniques (so-called Mental Poker solutions) provided by LibTMCG. The outdated OpenSkat branch contains a graphical user interface based on XSkat 3.4. This interface can be used with most recent versions, but must be built separately.
Evolvotron is an interactive "generative art" application to evolve images/textures/patterns through an iterative process of random mutation and user-selection driven evolution. If you like lava lamps, and never got tired of the Mandelbrot set, this could be the software for you. It's implemented using Qt, and is multithreaded.
Catch the Furball is an icebreaker board game intended for friends to play around a computer. It features a freshly-generated board for each game, an eclectic collection of cards, and beautiful pictures of Cambridge University. The distribution is intended both to allow Web masters to quickly set up their own copy of the game, and to allow tinkerers to use the game engine to make their own games. It includes the editor used to create game data.
mg.applanix is a multi-featured, configurable, Web- and MySQL-based application for management of small and medium-sized accommodation establishments, such as hotels, campsites, hostels, and motels. mg.applanix features an occupancy table for all managed rental objects, a detailed customer information and booking file, a tiny organizer, and customizable printing of bills, address labels, etc. It also provides user-based session management.

Autopoweroff is a script that shuts down a computer at a specific time, but only if some conditions are met. It works well on home routers/firewalls where the machine can be switched off every night and powered back up in the morning. It can be configured to only shut down the server after any computers which depend on the server for Internet access have been shut down.
rawdog is a feed aggregator capable of producing a personal "river of news" or a public "planet" page. It supports all common feed formats, including all versions of RSS and Atom. By default, it is run from cron, collects articles from a number of feeds, and generates a static HTML page listing the newest articles in date order. It supports per-feed customizable update times, and uses ETags, Last-Modified, gzip compression, and RFC3229+feed to minimize network bandwidth usage. Its behavior is highly customizable using plugins written in Python.
