CElect is a console-based tool for determining a social preference ordering, such as an elected candidate or choice in a single-winner election, or the preferred composition of a multi-member council, based on a list of individual preference orderings (ballots) over the candidates or choices. It can also calculate the winner and social ordering when given a Condorcet matrix and list of candidates, though it is in that case limited to Condorcet methods. Of single-winner methods, it supports Dodgson, Simpson, Tideman/wv, first and second-order Copeland, and Schulze (all Condorcet methods), and FPTP, Borda, 1/n Borda, Hare, Nanson, and 1/n Nanson. Of proportional representation, it supports CPO-STV, CFPRM, and D'Hondt without lists.
UFOClock draws an astronomical clock. From it you can read the time of day, phase of the lunar month, ratio of day to night, time until a solstice or equinox, and time until the end or beginning of twilight. The time of day depends on your location on the surface of the Earth, which you can enter on the command line or in a dotfile in your home directory. Location can be given as latitude/longitude or ZIP code. It is called UFO clock because it sort of looks like crop circles. It is based on Sundial by George Williams. It requires GLUT installed to run and the NOVAS library to build.
