StressItOut is a hardware stressing and testing program for GNU/Linux. Its main purpose is to strain the computer to ensure the hardware is in good state. There are several test modules: CPU load, memory test, 2D OpenGL painting, 3D OpenGL rendering, hard drives, optical drives, serial ports transmission, and parallel ports. Support for lm-sensors is in the works. This software, when ready for release, will mainly be aimed at the QA departments of hardware manufacturing companies, who need to ensure their newly produced machines perform correctly under heavy workloads, and that all their components work as expected.
OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy-to-use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in Web applications. It is designed to be used by people with a wide range of security experience and as such is ideal for developers and functional testers who are new to penetration testing as well as being a useful addition to an experienced pen tester's toolbox. ZAP provides automated scanners as well as a set of tools that allow you to find security vulnerabilities manually.
TSPSG is intended to generate and solve "travelling salesman problem" (TSP) tasks. It uses the Branch and Bound method for solving. Its input is a number of cities and a matrix of city-to-city travel costs. The matrix can be populated with random values in a given range (which is useful for generating tasks). The result is an optimal route, its price, step-by-step matrices of solving, and a solving graph. The task can be saved in an internal binary format and opened later. The result can be printed or saved as PDF, HTML, or ODF. TSPSG may be useful for teachers to generate test tasks or just for regular users to solve TSPs. Also, it may be used as an example of using the Branch and Bound method to solve a particular task.
Gnetworktester is an application that helps users in testing the quality of a network connection and in sending complaints on that to the network provider. A procedure of testing takes three steps: choosing the network nodes; automatic pinging of those nodes to collect statistics on packet losses, delays, and overall quality; and automatic report writing.
Fresh Memory is an application that helps you to learn large amounts of any material with Spaced Repetition method. The most important subject is learning foreign words, but Fresh Memory can also e used to learn anything else. Other examples are country's capitals and flags, chemical elements, mathematical formulas, and technical terms. The learning data is stored as flash cards and dictionaries: sets of cards. The flash cards may have several fields, and the user controls what combination of fields to learn. The flash cards can have formatted text and images. The look of flash cards and studying parameters are can be flexibly adjusted.
ETH Lecture Communicator is a tool to improve classroom interaction between an instructor and their students. It enables the instructor to create and carry out in-class online assessments, and facilitates organized instant communication for large classes. It is intended to improve the overall quality of a lecture by providing the instructor with continuous feedback on the students' understanding of the material.
