gPS (graphical Process Statistics) is a system information applet based on GTK+. It displays the processes of one or more computers (like ps or top), allows killing, renicing, and signal sending, shows lots of details on selected processes, shows CPU/Memory usage and history graphs, and is capable of watching networked computers in addition to the local one. It also provides an easy way to send signals to processes based on their owners (uid), groups (gid), and string matching.
ssct is a command-line utility, humble of intent, that takes a single word, spell checks it, takes the result(s) and then translates them. It works to/from english only. From/to languages are limited by ispell in the first instance, and by the IDP (Internet Dictionary Project) files in the second. Currently the latter includes Spanish, Portuguese (minimal), Latin, German, French and Italian. These files are included with this package. This utility was originally created to make it easier to decode badly-scrawled postcards from Spain.
The EnRus dictionary tools are TCL/Tk scripts for reading a textual (plain or compressed by gzip or bzip2) dictionary base and compiling new dictionary bases from plain text files. It consists of a few TCL console scripts and a Tk interface to them. It is configurable for different languages. The dictionary base may contain proper formatting and output procedures.
Cadaver is a simulated world of cyborgs and nature in realtime. The battlefield consists of forests, grain, water, grass, carcass (of course) and lots of other things. The game server manages the game and the rules. You start a server and connect some clients. The clients communicate with the server using a very primitive protocol. They can order cyborgs to harvest grain, attack enemies or cut forest. The game is not intended to be played by humans! Instead the idea is that you write artificial intelligence clients to beat the other artificial intelligences.
SWISH++ is a Unix-based file indexing and searching engine (typically used to index and search files on web sites). It was based on SWISH-E although SWISH++ is a complete rewrite. SWISH++ is at least 10 times faster and can handle much larger numbers of files. Additionally, it has unique features such as selective non-indexing, on-the-fly filters, user-selectable stemming, and more.
mod_backhand is a load balancing module for Apache. It provides per-request HTTP redirection within a heterogeneous Apache server cluster. Each request is processed and run through a set of "candidacy functions" to determine which server is best suited to respond. The request is then proxied to that server. Facilities are in place to allow you to write your own dynamically loadable decision making algorithms. Everything about the request and the current availability of resources can be used in the decision-making process.
