Backshift is a deduplicating (variable-sized, content-based blocks), compressing (xz or bz2) backup program. Full saves and incrementals are pretty indistinct other than the amount of data transmitted, somewhat like with "rsync --link-dest" but without the huge number of hardlinks. It also de-duplicates large file content at a granularity of about 2 megabytes on average; there tends to be a unique copy of each file with size less than around 2 megabytes on average.
Chnorm is a simple command line utility for setting the owner, group, and the mode of given files and directories on a per file/per directory basis, recursively. It is especially useful if you often copy files with brain-dead permissions from filesystems not supporting the Unix permission scheme. It detects executables based on their contents and sets their permissions accordingly.
QuickTile is a simple attempt to duplicate the basic functionality of WinSplit Revolution for users who don't like the Compiz Grid plugin. It should work on any X11 desktop with PyGTK 2.2+, a window manager that supports the modern range of NETWM hints, and (if you want internal keybinding) python-xlib.
The Procrastinator's Timeclock is a simple utility for people who suffer from excessive procrastination or distractibility. The utility achieves its benefits by allowing you to comfortably track just how much time your little "one more thing"s are adding up to and by helping to bolster willpower by providing a gentle distraction from temptations. Its design focuses on simplicity, intuitiveness, and a preference for keeping existing users rather than attracting new ones.
Unsettings is a graphical configuration program for the Unity desktop environment which lets you change some of Unity's settings. It also lets you save your settings into and load from a text file (in JSON format) so you can easily back up your settings or copy them to a different account.
