Hush is a full object-oriented programming language, based loosely on Smalltalk. Features include typeless data, polymorphism, dynamic method binding, static and dynamic object bases, mixin support, exception handling, closures, multiple threads, garbage collection, a fully embeddable virtual machine, separate compilation with linker, the core program (text only) runs on Unix, Cygwin, Windows, and there is a graphics bindings for X11. Hush allows rapid development of small programs and is intended as a general purpose language for quick solutions to problems. it also encourages proper object-oriented techniques. It differs significantly from Smalltalk in the construction of a class and the flow control of the methods; it is more like a traditional procedural language. It is not intended to be a full system like Smalltalk, but rather executes as a stand-alone program.

dd_rescue copies data from one file or block device to another. It is intended for error recovery, so by default, it doesn't abort on errors and doesn't truncate the output file. It uses large block sizes to quicken the copying, but falls back to small blocks upon encountering errors. It produces reports that allow you to keep track of bad blocks. dd_rescue features a number of optimizations, such as sparse block detection, preallocation, and Linux zerocopy (splice). It supports data protection by (multi-pass) overwriting of files or partitions with good and fast random numbers.
queue-admin is a bash2 shell script for managing the mail queue of the qmail MTA. It can provide a summarized list of the messages in the queue, optionally filtered by number or by whether a message is local or remote. The messages themselves can be listed, viewed, or deleted by the same criteria. It can also search for expressions within the messages, and can return the entire email or only the line where the expression was found. The output is colorized.
