The file check daemon monitors files according to rules defined in configuration files. When a file is considered stable (due to its age, presence of a flag file, etc.) then it gets copied to a new location. Rotating backups of the destination file can be made and owner, group and permissions can be specified for the destination. Some examples of where this utility has been found to be useful are: Moving files out of an incoming FTP directory in a timely manner. Moving files uploaded to a web server into directories with different user/group. This lets the administrator run the web server as a non-root user and accept uploads using web server based authentication and then move the files to a more secure area after the transfer. The details of how to determine whether a file is stable and what to do with it once it is are defined in a "Filespec" configuration file. There is a separate filespec for each file that will be monitored which means that each file can have unique behavior associated with it.
Hodie prints the current date and time to stdout in Roman numerals, with grammatically correct Latin. Complete with Id., Kal., Non., pridie, postridie, bis, and all the other nice annoyances. As an option, it even provides you with current date according to Roman calendar -- that is 'ab urbe condita'; after Rome was built.
shellsupport supports (bourne) shell scripting. It is a command line C program that provides those features that are lacking when writing portable shell scripts, because they are not covered by other portable (Posix 1003.2) tools. Amoung them are conversion routines from many ASCII date representation formats to seconds since the epoch and vice versa, file padding and wiping, symlink target display, random numbers, and counting.
XNotesNG is the next generation of XNotesPlus, a full-featured personal information manager.

Xsel is a quick hack to give access to the X selection from the command-line. You can then copy stuff between stdin/stdout and the X selection buffer. For example, 'echo puppa | xsel -c' makes "puppa" the current X selection. 'xsel -p | less' pastes the current X selection to less.
adlook (Address Lookup tool) is a multi-threaded host name and technical contact lookup tool. It accepts a list of IP addresses from the command line, from a data file, or from stdin, and outputs the hostname and technical contact for each address. Although it is written in Python, for the time being it runs only on UNIX systems. Python must have been compiled with threads enabled to run adlook.
