BitWrk is creating a marketplace where participants can buy or sell computing power like stocks in a stock exchange, using Bitcoin as currency. The client software can be integrated with existing, compute-intensive applications (e.g. rendering software), creating a big boost by harnessing the combined computing power of the BitWrk network. Sellers earn money by putting their hardware to work, offering an alternative to Bitcoin mining.
Csum is a tool for manipulating CSV, TSV, PSV and other table formats for the command line. It can be used for converting between several formats; selecting and manipulating cells matching a selector; inserting or rearranging columns; sorting, reversing, or selecting unique rows; rotating rows so they become the columns of the table; and more. It was designed for environments where the use of a graphical spreadsheet to edit a CSV file was not possible or practical.
