Lockout is a tool for slackers that browse the Web, read the news, and write email all day instead of working. It prevents users from feeling miserable and apathetic and improves productivity by enforcing discipline through a variety of methods, including not allowing you to view Web sites or become root to secretly change things back (you slacker!).
adesklets is an interactive Imlib2 console for the X Window System. It provides to scripted languages a clean and simple way to write great looking, mildly interactive desktop integrated graphic applets (aka "desklets"). It can also be used as a command line oriented graphics editor, a bit similar to ImageMagick, but with different functionality.
Sprog is a graphical tool that anyone can use to build programs by plugging parts together. In Sprog jargon, the parts are known as 'gears' and they are assembled to make a 'machine'. Gears are selected from a palette and dragged onto the Sprog workbench, where they can be connected together. Options can be set using a properties dialog on each gear. When assembly is complete, the machine can be run, reconfigured, or re-run.
stdin2news is a simple script that posts imput from STDIN to a news server. It is easily configurable, doesn't require any external programs, and can be used in batch jobs. Unlike rnews it does not require a msgid to be provided, as it presumes it will be generated by the news server.
Foxtrot is a full text indexing software for PDF, OpenOffice.org 1 and 2, MS Word, and XLS files. The packge provides two different frontends: a Google-like searching tool implemented with Perl-Gtk and a PHP-based Web interface. The backend scans directories asynchronously, converts files to text, and indexes them in a MySQL database.
The Pure Perl RayCaster is a small simple ray-casting application written completely in Perl without using OpenGL or any other 3D API library. For the GUI, it uses wxPerl. It can load a 3D object from a file (in RAW format), display the object in wireframe perspective view, allow you to orbit and zoom your camera, and produce a user defined size ray casting image of the current view in a predefined color theme, with or without smooth shading. It is well suited for educational purposes, in order to study, understand, tweak, and try well known fundamental 3D computer graphics techniques.
The Enhanced TightVNC Viewer, SSVNC, adds encryption security to VNC connections. The package provides a GUI for Windows, MacOS X, and Unix that automatically starts up an STUNNEL SSL tunnel for SSL or ssh/plink for SSH connections to any VNC server and then launches the VNC Viewer to use the encrypted tunnel. On Unix and MacOS X, a VNC viewer with many new features is provided. The short name for this project is "ssvnc", for SSL/SSH VNC viewer.
