Podget is a simple podcast aggregator optimized for running as a scheduled background job (i.e. cron). It features support for downloading podcasts from RSS and XML feeds, for sorting the podcasts into folders and categories, for importing podcast URLs from iTunes PCAST files and OPML lists, automatic M3U and ASX playlist creation, and automatic cleanup of old podcasts. It also features automatic UTF-16 conversion for podcasts hosted on Windows servers.
DVDripTools is a collection of scripts that operate DVD ripping tools. It consists of ripdvd, which creates an MKV, OGM, or MP4 file container very easily; ripdvdcrop, which detects the cropping to use when ripping a DVD; and ripdvdtest, which performs a ripping test of a few seconds.
BongoSurfer is a least-cost router for Linux, like the Smartsurfer program for Windows. It allows you to connect to the Internet with a 56k modem or ISDN, and chooses the cheapest provider for you. The tariff database is updated every day from http://www.billiger-surfen.de/. Since the tariffs only apply within Germany, the program is of little use in other countries. It features a cost calculator, a traffic monitor, an online timer, and more.
wview is an application that controls a supported weather station to retrieve archive records and current conditions. Archive records may optionally be stored in a relational database (MySQL or PostgreSQL). At a user-defined interval, wview will use the archive history and current conditions to generate weather images (buckets and graphs) and Web pages based on configurable HTML templates. It supports serial and USB data loggers, as well as connectivity with a terminal server or serial server via TCP sockets.
Trojan scan is a simple shell script that allows for simple but relatively effective checking for trojans, rootkits and other malware that may be using your server and network for unwanted (and possibly illegal) purposes. It works by listing all processes that use the Internet with the lsof command (using -Pni flags). This list is then transformed into signatures in the form of process_name:port_number:user. These signatures then are matched against the allowed process defined in the configuration. If any signatures of running processes are found that do not match the allowed signatures, an email report is sent including ps, ls, and optional lsof output.
dmzBackup is a program for backing up data in a heterogeneous DMZ network. It features disk-to-disk backup of remote/local host data, data encryption, multiple simultaneous data flows, error logs and email reporting, a search tool for locating files in a backup, a compressed index, host timestamps for incremental backups, human readable journal logs, host based configuration files, command-line arguments for interactive backups, client side compression, and unlimited (remote) backup clients for one backup host.
DVD-Baker generates a DVD consisting of menus and slideshows from a picture collection stored in a Menalto Gallery G2 Web site or in a locally stored directory tree. Each "leaf" album (an album that does not contain sub-albums) is used to create a slideshow. The slideshows (and any DVD-ready MPEG videos) are made accessible on the DVD with menus that follow the structure of the Web site or directories. Extra features include random or sequential autoplay, and audio support. Since dvd-slideshow is used to produce each slideshow, it supports effects such as crossfades, crops, and 'Ken Burns' effects.
BlueSense SDK is a software development kit for communicating with BlueSense equipment. It allows you to read out sensors or control actuators. A user-space USB driver for all platforms is included. Examples for all modules are also included. For Java and Mono/C#, there is an object-oriented interface, and for C, there is a function based interface.
