libusbx is a library which provides generic access to USB devices. As a library, it is meant to facilitate the development of applications which communicate with USB hardware. Its main features are portability (a single cross-platform API for Linux, OS X, Windows, and *BSD), user-mode (no special privileges required), and USB version-agnosticism (all versions of the protocol supported, including USB 3.0).
mk-configure is a lightweight replacement for GNU autotools written in and for bmake (a portable version of NetBSD make). The main goal is to have only one top-level tool instead of aclocal+automake+autoconf+autoheader. Other goals are clean design, simplicity, and "no code generation".
MaheshaNetBSD is a NetBSD Live USB distribution which has the IceWM Desktop and the same feel as all the author's MaheshaBSD-based products. A LiveCD can easily be made from it by running the /makeiso script in the root directory. It can be used for many things like viewing presentations (PDF files, images, etc.), handling recovery tasks, playing music, playing chess, surfing the Internet, etc. Linux emulation is activated. The advantage of this LiveUSB is that the USB pendrive is writable after booting (unlike other MaheshaBSD products), and users can thus easily install packages from the Internet. However, as USB flash drives do not like too many writes, the author keeps a few directories in memory (/tmp, /var, /etc.). MaheshaNetBSD lets you can write in Sanskrit.
Bacula is a set of programs that allow you to manage the backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of different computers. It is based on a client/server architecture and is efficient and relatively easy to use, while offering many advanced storage management features that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files.
pv (Pipe Viewer) is a terminal-based tool for monitoring the progress of data through a pipeline. It can be inserted into any normal pipeline between two processes to give a visual indication of how quickly data is passing through, how long it has taken, how near to completion it is, and an estimate of how long it will be until completion.
