nfstimesync is a tool for synchronizing the time of an NFS server and client without root rights. It was developed to allow the "make" program work correctly with NFS. It was tested on Linux (i386, alpha, sparc), Solaris (sparc), and FreeBSD. It should be easily portable to any Unix with LD_PRELOAD enabled.
Creox is a real-time sound processor. You can plug your electric guitar or any other musical instrument directly to the PC's sound card and start experimenting with various sound effects. It has a nice user-friendly GUI, a preset support, and a low-latency DSP engine, and each effect parameter can be altered on the fly. As Creox is a JACK application, the output sound can be routed to the other JACK-aware applications, and the audio input can be taken as the output from the other JACK client.
