cronbot is a wrapper script for cron jobs. Rather than running your job/script directly, you run it through cronbot, and it will allow a little more control to help keep things from getting out of hand. The default behavior is to only allow one instance of your job to run. This can be changed with the --duplicate option. You can also pass in a maximum time of execution for a job or add a random amount time to delay the start of your job. By default, jobs are run with a default "nice" value, which is usually 10.
Castle Game Engine is a cross-platform 3D game engine written in Object Pascal. It includes a flexible system of 3D objects, with out-of-the-box levels, items, intelligent creatures, and more. Rendering and processing of 3D models in X3D, VRML, Collada, and other formats is implemented. Many graphic effects are available, including shadows, bump mapping, shaders, mirrors, and screen effects.
Ferret is a copy-detection tool, locating duplicate text or code in multiple text documents or source files. It is designed to detect copying (collusion) within a given set of files. Ferret is useful for document analysis, tracking changes to or reuse of text in documents; for software developers, looking for duplicate code to refactor; in software evolution, studying how code has changed over time; for teachers, looking for collusion or plagiarism in student work; and for tracking the amount of new material in the current version of a text or program.
QuantComponents is a framework for financial time-series analysis and algorithmic trading, based on Java and OSGi, with an Eclipse front-end. It is highly modular: usable as a plain Java API, OSGi components, or integrated into Eclipse. It works standalone or with a client-server architecture, depending on performance and reliability needs, and is integrated with Interactive Brokers through the IB Java API. Its generic broker API means that it can easily be extended to work with other brokers. A backtesting facility and an extensible SWT charting library are provided.

OZvm is principally a hardware emulation of the Cambridge Z88 portable computer, a Z80 CPU system with 4Mb addressable memory, a monochrome 640x64 LCD, and RS-232 serial port. It allows you to install any ROM or application card binary that also runs on a real Z88 portable. OZvm is also a versatile Z80 assembler debugging environment with a command line, screen activity recording, and Z80 instruction logging. It assists the developer in testing Z80 assembler programming of the Z88 operating system or 3rd party applications.
