izBalancing is a bash script featuring an in/out multi-homed load-balanced Internet gateway traffic manager with a failover facility. It features multiple balanced default gateway configurations, load-balanced outgoing connections from LAN to Internet connections, and management of multiple incoming connections from many Internet ISP lines to DMZ/LAN Servers. It is a SystemV compliant script, and can be easily run at boot. It will automatically discover your local IP addresses. You can cleanly start and stop your multi-homed configuration with a simple command (izbalancing start|stop|restart). Adding new Internet connections is very fast and easy: you need only provide the interface name, router IP address, and a descriptive name. If the izping daemon is installed into /etc/rc.d/init.d/, it will be used for automatic failover and recovery of Internet lines.

It natively supports Linux, *BSD, OS X, and Solaris systems without third-party dependencies, and is interoperable with any event loop that accepts plain descriptors, or is usable standalone.
Ferret is a copy-detection tool, locating duplicate text or code in multiple text documents or source files. It is designed to detect copying (collusion) within a given set of files. Ferret is useful for document analysis, tracking changes to or reuse of text in documents; for software developers, looking for duplicate code to refactor; in software evolution, studying how code has changed over time; for teachers, looking for collusion or plagiarism in student work; and for tracking the amount of new material in the current version of a text or program.
pyReScene is a tool that recreates original RARs by backing up the metadata. It is a port of ReScene .NET to Python. It provides a mechanism for backing up and restoring the metadata from "scene" released RAR files. RAR archive volumes are rebuilt using the stored metadata in the SRR file and the files extracted from the RAR archive. pyReScene consists of multiple related tools: pyReScene Auto to create a complete SRR with one simple command, pyReSample to recreate sample files, and pyReScene Usenet to create SRR files on the fly from Usenet postings. Lots of other small scripts for managing SRR and SRS files are available too.
