a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.
The Auto Screenshot Utility for Linux allows users to capture screenshots at regular intervals. Configurable options allow control of the number of screenshots to capture. The capture time interval is also configurable from the main screen of the software. If your desktop environment supports a notification area, you can even minimize the main screen of the software to the notification area/system tray. The screenshot location is configurable as well.

ClassPublic.java is a Java .class file converter which makes a Java class public and non-final, its fields public, and its methods public and non-final. ClassPublic.java has a compact implementation, depending only on J2SE 1.5.0 or newer. ClassPublic.java can be used to increase interoperability and code reusability of a .class file whose .java source is not available or is not feasible to recompile.
Components 4 Java is a development tool for Java. It provides a framework to organize and separate different parts of code, and fills the gap between the class level and the library level as provided by the Java SE architecture. Additionally, you can organize your classes in well-separated and loosely coupled components. Those can be stuck together graphically into larger compositions. Finally, components and compositions will be distributed among Java archives as specified in assemblies.
DiscRotate is a MenuItem that will control the speed of your optical drives. It is written in Cocoa for Mac OS X Leopard and later. It can help you make optical drive operation much quieter. Upon launching, a drive icon will appear in your menu bar at the top. It will list all installed optical drives and let you choose how much throttling applies to each of them. The green bar shows the current setting, and can be clicked to change the throttling speed. 100% means the minimum drive speed. When using heavily scratched CD/DVDs it is recommended to lower the setting to about 85%. Clicking the CD icon in the list will pause throttling for that particular optical drive.
FontMapper is a font texture generator for game developers. It allows you to turn a font you have installed to a PNG texture of tightly packed glyphs, accompanied by a text file describing the glyphs' properties and texture coordinates. You can read these in a game to render fonts. FontMapper supports Unicode (although only the Basic Multilingual Plane, i.e. the 16-bit codepoints), and each glyph can have its own size, i.e. fonts are not necessarily monospaced. Currently, FontMapper is command-line only, although there might be a GUI frontend in the future.
Hoplax is a power user tool to store bookmarks in text files and manage them efficiently. Bookmarks stored in Hoplax are easy to edit and search with normal Unix tools and editors. They are easy to synchronize with git/svn/darcs/etc. Bookmarks can be categorized easily into files, and you can choose to not synchronize a file to a computer, e.g. confidential company bookmarks to home computers. The filtering is smarter than the browser's location bar. Keyword bookmarks with multiple parameters and auto-completion are supported.
