napMan is an infobot that provides you with a real time glimpse into the current state of the worldwide network of nap servers that are based on either the closed source Napster protocol or the Open Source opennap protocol. It displays a list of all the nap servers and current statistics for each server (users, number of MP3 files, gigabytes), and provides the ability to ping individual servers and check the network lag time, a facility to save the list of servers and statistics to a file, and the ability to refresh statistics for individual servers or all the servers.
lookuplet is a GNOME utility that allows you to easily enter search terms (it automatically grabs the X selection when invoked) and then press a key combination which will cause those terms to be substituted into a URL which is launched using your preferred Web browser, or to be substituted into a command line which is invoked. It is rather useful for things like dictionary lookups, Web searches, map lookups, etc. The idea is to shave seconds off of queries that you find yourself doing all of the time. Though it uses the GNOME libraries, it doesn't require that you be running the GNOME desktop environment.
The MP3 Streaming DownSampler for PHP is written with cable modem/DSL users with low upstream caps in mind. Using LAME, it dynamically downsamples a requested MP3 to a bitrate which can be streamed. It doesn't use temporary files, so you don't have to take the time to do any batching, and you just give it a directory with symlinks to your music in a place the Web server can reach. The interface is simplistic and fast, meant for immediate plug and play access.
Client Search is a client-side Web site search facility that can be added to Web pages. It allows Web masters to add a site search facility without having to rely on server side utilities. The search can be limited to files specified by the Web master or by means of a site spider. It searches for keywords required by the user and requires no server side CGI scripts. It is ideal for sites built on budget whose Internet service providers do not allow server side processing or CD ROM distributions where search facilities cannot be assumed.
Readerware is an easy and fast tool for cataloging your books, music, and videos. Its unique auto-catalog feature lets you feed in a list of ISBNs, UPCs, or barcode scans, automatically searching multiple Web sites to build the most complete database possible, with cover art. It is also possible to drag and drop from a browser. A Palm OS interface is provided, allowing you to take your database with you.
