Ftwalk is a high level script programming language, very similar to awk, but greatly extended to include a richer type system, object-oriented features, 300+ built-in functions, extensibility through dynamic libraries, etc., which makes it roughly comparable to languages like Perl. It does file tree searches, and was originally used to implement selective redundant copy backup stores. It can be run interactively as a calculator.
The JACAL Project is a suite of programs, scripts, guidelines, protocols, documentation, and diskettes that assist in quick, network based loads/builds of machines. It has been used to build 70 University lab machines from scratch (No OS) in two hours. This includes NT service packs and 80+ applications on the NT side.
SigLab is a calculator designed for working on signals. You can use it to load, save, or generate signals, and do various operations on and between signals (addition, log, abs, sin, filtering, convolution, fft, correlation, etc.). Signal parts are constantly displayed. SigLab was designed to be able to handle the results of simulations or measurements. It can handle signals with millions of points, keeping in memory a small piece of each signal. To keep good performance, it caches in memory signal portions. SigLab was specifically designed for Ptolemy users. It will start at the end of a simulation and show all asked signals.
yplot is an interface to the PLPlot plotting library written as an extension of yorick. This combination allows one to quickly and easily create high-quality scientific plots from data, even in large structured files. yplot implements 2D line and scatter plots, contour plots, 3D surface, mesh and scatter and line plots. The user is given full control over every aspect of the plot, including symbol types, line types, label placement, fonts, etc. The results can therefore be made suitable for high-quality scientific presentation. A 60 page Postscript tutorial is included with examples and a reference section.
SuperTux is a side-scrolling platform game. The hero in this game is Tux the Penguin, the game's only reference to Linux. On the journey to rescue Penny, who has been kidnapped by evil Nolok, Tux faces 23 different kinds of bad guys while jumping and running through 101 beautifully-drawn levels. The soundtrack is available on last.fm and similar sites.
Very Simple Network Monitor is a bash shell script CGI that monitors a number of services on a network. It currently checks for node-up, TCP service up, and UDP service up. A service or system can be put in maintenance status to avoid repetitive alarms. It is easy to customize, trigger alarms by email, or whatever you like (depends on nmap for TCP/UDP service checks). Installation is also simple. It generates HTML with all statuses, and for all services just in one view.
