OSSEC For PfSense is a module that allows the execution of OSSEC HIDS on the PfSense platform, in order to improve the security of your network. It enables better diagnosis and anticipation of possible attacks on servers. As the OSSEC is based on analysis of logs, its accuracy in detecting potential attackers makes it one of the best tools for intrusion detection. It can also read the logs generated by the Snort package, which can easily be added to PfSense.
dvd-slideshow-editor is a GUI editor for the dvd-slideshow script. dvd-slideshow is a very flexible program, and produces high-quality slideshow video. However, it is text-based. This program allows you to see visually where you are cropping or how the kenburns effect is going to look in the final product.
Multicrush is a wrapper around pngcrush that distributes the work of brute-force compressing a single image over several pngcrush processes. This gets you a slightly less than a linear speedup, caused by different compression methods having slightly different durations. For example, the author has measured a speedup of 1.92 on a 2-core Intel T5300, and 3.86 on a 4-core Intel Q6600. The only requirements are a copy of pngcrush and at least Python 2.4. If you have version 2.6 or higher, multicrush can automatically detect how many CPUs to use.
FinMetrics is a MATLAB-based quantitative portfolio management environment. Built on concepts of bottom-up approach to application design, it allows users to define most basic, low level building blocks, e.g. assets and transactions, to be further pieced together in higher level objects, e.g. positions or portfolios. Data analysis and statistics functions, implemented within the environment and native to MATLAB, enable users to conduct scenario analysis, stress testing, performance measurement and attribution, risk measurement and attribution, design hedge strategies, etc. The open architecture of the environment allows users to work with objects of any level, depending on their requirements and expertise. The object structure and data types are specifically designed to make integration with MATLAB and native FinMetrics functions as easy as possible. The FinMetrics user interface application and MATLAB scripting may be utilized to facilitate or automate complex and repetitive tasks, as well as extend the functionality of the environment.
gwcalc is a front-end for the Wcalc command line calculator. Its main features are menu access to all functions defined in Wcalc, menu access to a huge number of constants defined in Wcalc, intuitive entry of formulas, easy editing and 're-evaluation', and easy conversion between decimal, hex, octal, and binary, both in input and output. It works with fractional numbers in all bases, is very configurable, and is easy to use.
