wnews downloads and displays RSS news feeds from the Web and displays them in a curses page-based user interface or in parseable line-based output. There is support for HTTP gzip compression and decompression, proxying, key binding, dynamic client, resources configuration, and HTML parsing. It was developed as an efficient and simple RSS news client.
iLAP (Laboratory data management, Analysis, and Protocol development) is a workflow-driven information management system specifically designed to create and manage experimental protocols and to analyze and share laboratory data. The system combines experimental protocol development, wizard-based data acquisition, and high-throughput data analysis into a single, integrated system.
Weed-FS is a simple and highly scalable distributed file system. There are two objectives: to store billions of files, and to serve the files fast! Instead of supporting full POSIX file system semantics, it implements only a key-file mapping. Instead of managing all file metadata in a central master, it manages file volumes in the central master and lets volume servers manage files and the metadata. This relieves concurrency pressure from the central master and spreads file metadata into volume servers' memories, allowing faster file access with just one disk read operation. It is modelled on Facebook's Haystack design paper. Only 40 bytes of disk storage are required for each file's metadata, and disk reads are O(1).
ffmpegX is a Mac OS X GUI designed to easily operate more than 20 powerful Unix open-source video and audio processing tools, including ffmpeg, mpeg2enc, and mencoder (the MPEG-4 encoder with subtitles support). ffmpegX includes a bitrate calculator, a video player, and a series of video tools which can split, join, or fix video, compress a DVD to 4GB, author many VCD/SVCD images into one DVD image, and convert SRT subtitles to DVD Studio Pro 1.5 format.
Dwarf HTTP Server is a full-featured Web server with a Java Servlet API 2.2 implementation and JSP support. Since it is based on the Dwarf framework, it shares its common design principles: powerful security architecture, modularity and extensibility, XML-based configuration, uniform logging, and remote management.
db.* is a database management system (DBMS) designed to provide powerful, flexible, high-performance capabilities for developing embedded database applications. By combining the network and relational model technologies in a single system, it lets you organize and access information efficiently, regardless of the complexity of the data. The database has a very small footprint and because it is possible to use the network model to store some of the data, it can be very fast. It is also well-documented and quite simple to learn because of its C-based API.
Upstart Raising Patent Bar Exam Simulator is designed to emulate the new computer-delivered USPTO Registration Exam testing software. This study aid is provided for prospective registration examinees who wish to practice under realistic conditions. The simulator mirrors the basic functionality and navigational controls of the new testing software and combines this authentic recreation with actual test questions to provide a realistic testing environment
