powermated is a program for controlling X applications and command line programs, and for monitoring various aspects of your computer with the Griffin PowerMate USB dial.

ProteomeCommons.org IO Framework is a proper Java framework for handling spectra and peak lists. The framework can read and write to a number of different spectra and peak list formats, and it provides a simple, intuitive Java object model for working with spectra or peak lists. All classes support two methods of handling peak list and spectrum data: in-memory or stream. The goal of this framework is to support all the popular MS and MSMS data formats, and to eliminate any time or effort involved in figuring out how to read and write peak list or spectrum files.
MoonEdit is a collaborative text editor which allows many users over the Internet to edit the same document simultaneously. Every user can modify documents at any place or time, without restriction. You can watch other people's cursor movements in real time as they make changes. Each user writes text in their own color so you can easily tell who wrote what. Also included are a few bells and whistles, such as simulating the typing sound of a keyboard (so you know when others are making changes), an in-line equation evaluator (so you don't need to open a separate window for a calculator), and even a rudimentary music sequencer.
newslite is a command line tool to download from binary newsgroups and decode multi-part and single-part yENC and UU (Unix-to-Unix) encoded files. It is resource efficient in terms of CPU usage and memory, builds a "title list" in order to ease group content analysis, and is robust in cases of news server connection loss.
u2nl (u-tunnel, universal tunnel) is a small application that listens on a TCP port and tunnels all connections transparently via an HTTPS proxy (using the CONNECT command) to the Internet. Another host on the Internet is not needed. This only works if the HTTPS proxy allows these CONNECT connections. It can be used to provide a Linux host with full connectivity when everything except the http proxy is blocked by a firewall.
gfeed is an RSS feed reader for Linux and Gtk+ 2.0. It is designed to be a simple yet highly customizable reader, not an aggregator, which means it is designed for easy integration into a desktop. Its features include: customizable "feed" files that describe a feed; full support for transparency (native to the app) under X.org 6.8 and higher; and automatic updating of feeds based on an interval defined in the feed file.
