Spinlogs is a shell script for rotating system logs. It is configurable through a text file similar in format and featureset to the newsyslog program in FreeBSD. Any Unix system running ksh should be able to use it. There are many options defining how and when log files should be rotated, and the config file is very straightforward. Rotating log files is a pretty simple task, but some commercial platforms don't include anything better than the old "newsyslog", so this is provided as a system-independent alternative.
vTemplate is a PHP class that is intended to make splitting PHP from HTML a simple and natural task. It has easily understandable syntax that is much easier to use than other template classes. It compiles a template into native PHP code using one PCRE call, thus the parsing is extremely fast. It also has powerful caching and debugging classes to extend the functionality.
kipmp is an IPMP-like daemon that will flip a server's IP address between a primary and backup network interface based on the result of active probes against a (hopefully redundant) target like a default gateway. It is useful when one server is connected to multiple switches in the same network and higher availability is desired.
ajax-cross-browser-using-iframes uses Iframes, an empty div, and innerHTML, allowing you to create AJAX calls. It is a little bit confusing at first, but once you understand it and place the necessary nested PHP files, it will allow you to create unimaginable things. It is cross-browser.
Spotter is software that can check students' answers to symbolic and numerical problems in math and science. It recognizes an answer regardless of the form it's in, and the instructor can put in helpful hints as responses to frequently-occurring mistakes. Symbolic answers can be input in a notation closely resembling normal human math notation (e.g., xy rather than x*y, and sin x instead of sin(x)). Spotter runs as a Perl CGI application on a Web server; the student doesn't need to install any software.
Argus is a system and network monitoring application. It will monitor nearly anything you ask it to monitor (TCP + UDP applications, IP connectivity, SNMP OIDS, etc). It presents a clean, easy-to-view Web interface. It can send alerts numerous ways (such as via pager) and can automatically escalate if someone falls asleep.
Ion is a tiling (no overlapping windows) window manager that also has PWM-style tabbed frames which can contain multiple client windows. These features help to keep windows organized and to switch quickly between them. Ion was designed primarily as an efficient and unobtrusive window manager for users who prefer the keyboard.
qmqtool is a utility designed for viewing and safely modifying the contents of a qmail queue. It is extremely feature rich, with features including finding abusers, sorting messages by sender/sender's IP, showing stats, requeueing messages, queue consistency check, queue backup/restore, and others.
