The objective of the NIST Web Metrics Testbed is to explore the feasibility of a range of tools and techniques that support rapid, remote, and automated testing and evaluation of website usability. There are currently six components: 1. Web Static Analyzer Tool (WebSAT): checks web page HTML against typical usability guidelines. 2. Web Category Analysis Tool (WebCAT): lets the usability engineer construct and conduct a web category analysis (card-sorting). 3. Web Variable Instrumenter Program (WebVIP): instruments a website to capture a log of user interaction. 4. Framework for Logging Usability Data (FLUD): a file format and parser for representation of user interaction logs (such as those captured by WebVIP). 5. VisVIP Tool: produces a 3D visualization of user navigation paths through a website, based on FLUD data. 6. TreeDec: adds navigation aids to the pages of a website.

Tkinter is Python's de facto standard GUI (Graphical User Interface) package. It is a thin object-oriented layer on top of Tcl/Tk. To use Tkinter, you don't need to write Tcl code, but you will need to consult the Tk documentation and occasionally the Tcl documentation (since Tk's low-level event handling mechanism is considered part of Tcl).

Astro Battle is an online multiplayer space simulation game where players can design and pilot their space ships against each other. The spaceships are made up of modules.

A Player can join an arena by challenging another player to a space duel or by joining a dedicated server (which can host several players at a time). Astro Battle also has a practice arena for testing ship designs offline.
omega is a complex rogue-style game of dungeon exploration. Unlike other such games, there are a number of ways to "win", depending on various actions taken during play. The ways you can get your name on the hiscore board include becoming the highest ranked head of a guild, sect, college, etc., as well as gaining the most points figured from possessions and experience. The game (via the oracle) may impose some structure on your exploration, but you need not follow all of the oracle's advice. There *is* a "total winner" status, by the way.
