astime is an analogue clock for X windows. It shows the current time, the date and the day of the week. astime should run anywhere on Unix-like systems in principle but was so far tested on Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris only. The command-line options allow to customize colors of every element of the display.
Heartbeat is a full-function high-availability system for Linux and other POSIX-like OSes. It monitors services and restarts them on errors. When managing a cluster (more than 1 machine), it will also monitor the members of the cluster and begin recovery of lost services in less than a second. It runs over serial ports and UDP broadcast/multicast, as well as OpenAIS multicast. It is easily adapted to different interconnect media and protocols. When used in a cluster, it can operate using shared disks, data replication, or no data sharing. Versions starting with 2.0 are comparable to any commercial HA package, providing resource monitoring, larger clusters, and detailed dependency information.
bpowerd is a daemon and makes proper use of the system log for error checking. It uses init's powerstatus calls to do it's dirty work, instead of calling shutdown itself. bpowerd is easy to compile and configure, using GNU's autoconf and providing explicit instructions for testing and installation. bpowerd was created using specs provided from the manufacturer, as opposed to reverse-engineering.
The SWORD Project is an effort to create an ever expanding software package for research and study of God and His Word. Libraries are developed in ANSI-draft standard C++ and currently compile on Linux and in WIN32 environments. Frontends complete and currently under development include commandline tools, gtk, wxGTK, Qt, Gtk--, and WIN32 C++Builder). Addon modules include Bible texts, commentaries, lexicons, and dictionaries in a variety of languages.
npadmin is a command line tool to administer network printers. It is based on the concepts of JetAdmin and other vendor's tools but is designed to be scriptable. It uses SNMP to query the common printer MIB (RFC 1759) and return information about the printer. There is a surprising amount of information available in the common printer MIB and since the vendors all use their private MIBs, this appears to be the only tool that makes it available.
XPilot is a graphical multi-player maneuvering game with less-exciting graphics, but more speed, tactics, and insults. Some people also use it for UDP network analysis. Over the past eight years of playing and development, tons of features have been added to the game, from basic weapons like shotguns and missiles to more recent ones like phasing devices, invisibility, or hyperjump.
PIKT is cross-categorical, multi-purpose software for monitoring and configuring computer systems, administering networks, organizing system security, and much more. PIKT is intended primarily for system monitoring, and secondarily for configuration management, but its versatility and extensibility evoke many other wide-ranging uses. PIKT consists of a sophisticated, feature-rich file preprocessor; an innovative scripting language with unique labor-saving features; a flexible, centrally directed process scheduler; a customizing file installer; a collection of powerful command-line extensions; and other useful tools.
Email Security through Procmail (the Procmail Sanitizer) provides methods to sanitize email, removing obvious exploit attempts and disabling the channels through which exploits are delivered. Facilities for detecting and blocking Trojan Horse exploits and worms are also provided.
