Trafmetux is a network traffic meter for Linux. It tells you how much IP traffic has been seen by the Linux kernel module during the last few minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months. It's very useful when you have a limited Internet connection with quotas. For instance, many mobile broadband ISP provide only 3GB/month. In that case, you need to know how many megabytes you already used.
transcode is a text console video-stream processing tool. It supports elementary video and audio frame transformations. Some example modules are included to enable import of MPEG-1/2, Digital Video, and other formats. It also includes export modules for writing to AVI files with DivX, OpenDivX, XviD, Digital Video or other codecs. Direct DVD transcoding is also supported. A set of tools is available to extract and decode the sources into raw video/audio streams for import and to enable post-processing of AVI files.
translucency is a loadable kernel module for Linux that virtually merges two directories, making it possible to overwrite files on read-only media and compile projects (such as the Linux kernel) with different options without copying sources each time. No user-space tools have to be changed. The process is also known as inheriting (ifs), stacking, translucency (tfs), loopback (lofs), and overlay (ovlfs).
