fsh is a tool for establishing an ssh tunnel for remote execution of commands without requiring an ssh authentication on every connection. Once the tunnel is established, remote commands can be executed almost instantaneously. This makes systems such as remote cvs over ssh much faster. It includes fcp, an rcp variant that uses fsh.
Xfiles is an interactive utility for comparing and merging one file tree with another over a network. It supports freeform work on several machines (no need to keep track of what files are changed on which machine). Xfiles can also be used as a cross-validating disk<->disk backup strategy.
The Remote Microscope system consists of a server that manages the microscope and handles TCP connections, and Java-based client software that allows users to control the microscope. Currently the server software supports two different Leica microscopes, and two image acquisition devices.
Sketch is a vector drawing program similar to CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator. It is written almost completely in Python with some modules written in C, combining the flexibility and power of Python with the speed of C. Advanced features include gradient fills, clip masks, text along a path, blend groups, convert text to curves, and more.
Plucker is an offline Web and eBook viewer for Palm OS-based handheld devices and PDAs. It comes with Unix/Linux tools and conduits, and Windows and Mac OS X conduits that let you decide exactly what part of the Web you want to view on your PDA (as long as it's in standard HTML or text format). The requested Web pages are processed, compressed, and transferred to the PDA for viewing by the Plucker viewer.
mxCrypto is an extension package that provides OO-style access to the cipher algorithms and hash functions included in OpenSSL/SSLeay, a very nifty cryptographic library originally written by Eric Young and now maintained by the OpenSSL team. Its main purpose is filling in the missing parts in Andrew Kuchling's pycrypt export package with high quality implementations. Due to the ITAR export restrictions on cryptographic software, Andrew's implementations are not legally downloadable from outside the US.
Gaby is a small personal database manager using GTK+ and GNOME (if available) for its GUI. It was designed to provide straight-forward access to the types of databases a casual user would normally use, while keeping the ability to easily create databases for other needs. It was designed with extensibility in mind and relies heavily on plug-ins.
