losetup-utils are three bash scripts that attempt to make the use of losetup a bit easier and faster. losetup can be fast, easy, and practical if you need to transport sensitive information over the Internet or in CD's, DVD's, or a pendrive. Also, if you want to store private data on your hard disk or in the cloud, an encrypted volume can be a convenient choice. The types of encryption can be any installed on the system.
/etc/net represents a new approach to Linux network configuration tasks. Inspired by the limitations of traditional network configuration subsystems, /etc/net provides built-in support for configuration profiles, interface name management, removable devices, full iproute2 command set, interface dependencies resolution, QoS, and firewall configuration frameworks. /etc/net provides support for the following interface types: ethernet, WiFi (WEP), IPv4/IPv6 tunnels, PSK IPSec tunnels, VLAN, PLIP, ethernet bonding and bridging, traffic equalizer, Pent@NET, Pent@VALUE, SkyStar-2, TUN/TAP, OpenVPN TUN/TAP, usbnet, and PPP. Due to its modular structure, support for new interface types can be added without overall design changes.
4Sports is an exercise management application. You can use it to analyze your exercises in a number of ways. 4Sports can import data from the Garmin "Forerunner 201/301" devices, and can display some information in a table and in a graph (like heart rate over distance). It's also possible to export the tracks (GPS data) into Google Earth, where the track is color-coded according to your heart-rate. The graphs can be exported to SVG files.
6's Keen TV Listings Scanner is a program that accepts a list of your favourite TV shows, movies, actors, and actresses, and running from crontab, performs a daily search for them in gist.com's TV listings search engine, and emails you a summary of the results. You get a daily email listing 15-20 programs that you'd probably like to watch, and, of course, gist.com lets you exclude channels that you cannot access.
@ (monkey-tail) is a simple collection of simple commands. Built-in commands include listing of memory usage and open files for a process (by name or PID), running processes detached from a terminal, and running a program only once. @ can merge external pieces of code into itself to provide extra commands. Additionally, these "externals" can then be updated from their source. Currently there are externals available for extracting archive files (including nested archives), setting the GNOME desktop wallpaper image, and for replicating @ to another host via SSH. Externals can easily be written, as they are simply collections of Bash functions. It is completely self contained and self modifying, and is implemented in a single file.
@1 Age Status Indicator for Files and Folders is a script that checks the age of files and folders, and shows "NEW" image indicators according to the age. If pointed to a folder, the script will scan through all the files in that folder for the newest file (sub-folders and files in sub-folders are omitted).
