Soicmp consists of a server and a client. It allows a user to connect to a remote shell daemon by using the ICMP protocol instead of TCP. Entirely written in Python, soicmp is a working proof-of-concept to demonstrate that data can be transmitted across a network by hiding it in traffic that normally does not contain payloads.
Schifra is a very robust, highly optimized, and extremely configurable Reed-Solomon error correcting code library for both software and IP core based applications with implementations in C++ and VHDL. Schifra supports standard, shortened, and punctured Reed-Solomon codes. It also has support for stacked product codes and interleaving. Schifra provides a concise, predictable, and deterministic interface which lends itself to easy and seamless integration into the development of complex data communication projects requiring Reed-Solomon error correcting code capabilities.
HTML Redemption Language (HRL for short) is a language that redeems HTML by adding some tags that should have been in HTML from the beginning. The tags include "if", "include", "macro", and (most importantly) "python". HRL is a preprocessor language: its purpose is to generate static Web pages, but with power. It's written in Python, and its power comes from being able run embedded Python scripts.
Instant Picture Creator is a wrapper to produce images on demand for Web sites. It has filter management, and it's possible to add new filters. It can cache filtered images, works independently (no backend is needed), and is easy to integrate with existing Web sites. It includes two basic filters for resizing images and manipulating colour palettes. Currently it supports PNG, GIF, and JPEG.
Keystroke is a tool that aids in the transcription, subtitling, and logging of video and audio. It combines a video player and text editor and allows control of the media through keystrokes rather than through the mouse. Furthermore, it tracks the start and end times of each entered phrase in order to use the transcription in CMML/Annodex files as subtitles. It is also unique in that it does not display each clip in the usual table layout, instead utilizing a script-like view. Output can be in SRT, CMML, and plain text.
