mod_backhand is a load balancing module for Apache. It provides per-request HTTP redirection within a heterogeneous Apache server cluster. Each request is processed and run through a set of "candidacy functions" to determine which server is best suited to respond. The request is then proxied to that server. Facilities are in place to allow you to write your own dynamically loadable decision making algorithms. Everything about the request and the current availability of resources can be used in the decision-making process.
U-Hexen is a port of the popular 3D game, Hexen by Raven Software/Id Software, to the Simple Directmedia Layer library. It uses an SDL mixer for sound and music. Some new menus were added for easier configuration. It works on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and Windows. On FreeBSD, the game can work on the console without X.
SecurityFocus ARIS Extractor is a sophisticated Intrusion Detection System (IDS) log analyzer and reporting system, integrated with the SecurityFocus ARIS web site. It allows administrators to upload Intrusion Detection System (IDS) logs to the SecurityFocus ARIS Web site, producing sophisticated reporting, and research attacks and events. By filtering out insignificant or benign data and converting it to a common (XML) format, ARIS extractor streamlines incident reporting for both security professionals and home users, allowing IDS operators to focus only on relevant attacks and incidents. It allows you to analyze and archive logged incidents, cross reference incidents/attacks with the SecurityFocus Vulnerability Database, look up contact information for offending IP addresses, generate personal incident statistics and reports, automatically identify and report important incidents, reduce the amount of time spent parsing IDS logs, and generate daily summary reports, delivered by email (optional). All of this is done without revealing any information that could be used to discern your identity. It can be configured to obfuscate IP addresses, names, and other pertinent details before submitting them to the ARIS Analyzer web site. It supports Snort, Cisco Secure IDS, Dragon, NetProwler, RealSecure, BlackICE Defender, and ICEPac.

w4ais is a gateway between a forms-capable Web browser and an indexing/search program, based on the old EIT wwwwais program. This new version is tested completely with swish 1.2 and above, and should still work with freeWAIS. This version allows easy and thorough customization of the search page look and feel, and includes help and various utilities to install and configure multiple interfaces for various users or sites on a single system.
SWISH stands for Simple Web Indexing System for Humans. With it you can index directories of files and search the generated indexes. Based on EIT's swish, this is a cleaner-compiling, enhanced version with better docs, better installation and configuration tools, more sample configurations, and a Web page to help manage index rebuilding. SWISH is used with w4ais as a Web-based front end.
SING stands for 'Send ICMP Nasty Garbage.' It is a tool that sends ICMP packets fully customized from command line. Its main purpose is to replace and complement the ping command, adding certain enhancements as fragmentation; send and receive spoofed packets; send many ICMP information types (echo as the old ping, address mask, timestamp, and router discovery) and errors (redirect, unreach, and time exceeded); and send monster packets. It also supports loose and strict source routing and record routing.
cvsroot is a script to help keep track of multiple sites when using CVS, and in particular the CVSROOT and CVS_RSH environment variables for those sites. It creates a $HOME/.cvsroot file, with shortcut names representing the different CVS sites. The new environment variables appropriate to the site selected will then be set, and a new shell will be spawned to keep the variables. In this way, you do not have to keep setting the environment yourself, and can rely on the script to keep track of things for you.
