DiskScan scans the entire surface of a disk, alerts when a sector is unreadable, and uses the read timing to warn when a sector is having problems. It will tell when a disk has failed and already has bad sectors and also when the disk is near failure and takes too long to read the data.
LibMCore is a library that provides some functions to create asynchronous or synchronous lightweight process and generic queue processing. Some other basic functions are also available to count core number, to enable the real-time scheduler, to set core affinity, or to manipulate cycle counters.
Mathpump is a simplistic remote collaboration tool. It could be useful for those researchers who tend to think by drawing pictures (e.g. theoretical physics). Bob uses Inkscape to draw a picture, which is incrementally transmitted to the Alice's computer so she can look at it. She answers by drawing her own picture, which is transmitted to Bob. Transmission happens every time the SVG file is saved. The transmission is incremental; what is actually transmitted is the difference between the old version of the SVG file and the new one.
