Moscrack is a WPA cracker for use on clusters. It supports MOSIX, SSH, and RSH connectivity and works by reading a word list from STDIN or a file, breaking it into chunks, and passing those chunks off to separate processes that run in parallel. The parallel processes are then executed on different nodes in your cluster. All results are checked and recorded on your master node. Logging and error handling are taken care of. It is capable of running reliably for long periods of time, without the risk of losing data or having to restart. Moscrack uses aircrack-ng by default. Pyrit for WPA cracking and Dehasher for Unix password hashes are supported via plugins.
offrss is a standalone program that can download your favorite feeds and then show them in your favorite Web browser by spawning a simple local Web server. It will not only download the feeds' text, but also the pictures, so you will also be able to read comics strips and enjoy posts with pictures in them while offline. It can also generate PDFs from text. It remembers what you read and what you don't, and all the information stays in normal files, so you can synchronize it easily to any device that may not have an Internet connection. It can also work as a CGI to serve your feeds in your Web site, and it can update the feeds from crontab. It has few dependencies to build and can be cross compiled easily.
AdlMIDI is a command line program that plays MIDI files using software OPL3 emulation (FM synthesis). It has a console UI. It features a built-in selection of 50 patch sets, most of which are General MIDI compatible, but some of which are customized for playing original background music soundtracks of select PC games.
The SMS Server Tools 3 is a SMS gateway that can send and receive short messages through GSM modems and mobile phones. Messages are sent by simply storing text files into a special spool directory. It also stores received messages into another directory as text files. Binary messages including Unicode text and ring tones are also supported, and it is possible to send WAP Push and system messages. The program can run scripts after events like the reception of a message, successful sending, and when the program detects a problem.
Evergreen is a cross-platform development environment that tries to be lightweight and language-agnostic yet functional. It started as a project to reimplement Rob Pike's Acme editor for Plan 9 in Java, but has since evolved in directions that help it deal with large codebases and multiple projects/branches at once. Remaining similarities include the tiled windows and the Unix-like reliance on external programs rather than reinventing every wheel. The major philosophical differences include strong support for keyboard-based editing, language-specific functionality, and native platform UI conventions. There are also two new guiding principles: accepting regular expressions and output diffs.
The parallel project allows for simple parallel and distributed processing from shell scripts. In particular, the programs accept lines of shell code on the standard input and run these lines in parallel. The parallelism can be either on the local machine or on a cluster, if a small amount of time is taken to set up SSH. Additionally, the distributed version includes a degree of fault tolerance.
