SetiContainer is a C++ class that allows convenient access to all the information in the state files of a SETI@home client. It periodically examines these files and updates its own data members accordingly. Other programs can use this class to extract information about the progress of the client, the found signals, or the work unit being processed. Additional functions offer more advanced info (like the amount of TeraFlops in a work unit, estimated time of completion, etc.). The SetiContainer class is based on the Qt toolkit, and extensively uses Qt's Signal/Slot technique.
The Jogdial Patch integrates the jogdial package for Sony Vaio Notebooks with the Imwheel package. This patch makes it possible to use the jogdial (a kind of mouse wheel which is built into certain Vaio notebooks) in all X applications to scroll up and down or to deliver arbitrary keystrokes to X applications. The patch works well with the picturebook Sony Vaio PCG-C1XD and might work with other notebooks with a jogdial.
