GNU Phantom.Home is a computer controlled home automation system. The software includes a circuit diagram for building the Phantom.Home.Controller, a simple circuit board that attaches to your PC's parallel port. Using the combination of hardware/software you can control (i.e. flip on or off) nearly any 120V device. And with a little bit of electronics know-how, you can probably control nearly any device at any voltage by modifying the circuit board to meet your needs. The simple circuit included can be created and built for around $25. The modules cost around $10 (basically a heavy duty relay).
GNU Phantom.Security is a computer-controlled security system. Using the software and a simple circuit board (diagram included) that you build, you can create a good basic security system that is computer controlled. The system can use off-the-shelf security devices like motion sensors, door magnets, and fire/smoke detectors with little to moderate modification. You can have a total of 5 devices per port. And if the machine the system is running on is connected to a LAN/WAN or the Internet, you can have it send e-mail. If you have a pager or cell phone capable of receiving e-mail, then you will have around the clock intrusion/fire detection for your home or office.
gpsim is a software simulator for Microchip's PIC microcontrollers. It was designed to provide accurate simulation at real-time speeds. Support exists for all three families of PIC's: 12-, 14-, and 16-bit cores. Simulator features like breakpoints (both execution and memory), trace, symbolic debugging, etc. are all supported. Additonally, simulated stimuli like square waves and analog signals are supported or, if you want, you can create your own dynamically loadable modules (like a 7-segment display). gpsim has both a GTK-based GUI and a readline-based CLI.
Grail is an extensible Internet browser written entirely in the interpreted object-oriented programming language Python. It runs on Unix, and, to some extent, on Windows and Macintosh. Grail is easily extended to support other new protocols or file formats. Grail is distributed in source form, free of change, without warranties. It requires recent versions of Python and Tcl/Tk to run.
Greenstone is a complete digital library creation, management, and distribution package for Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X. Users create collections by gathering a set of input documents, specifying a configuration file, and running the build script. It provides full-text and fielded searching, browsable indexes, customised formatting, metadata extraction (acronyms, languages, etc), a Z39.50 client, and many other features. It supports many input formats, the interface is configurable and multi-lingual, and collections can be distributed on the Web or on CD-ROM.
