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.
Plait (pronounced "play") is a command-line jukebox and music player front end. It understands brief, easy to type queries that pick a single song, mix queries that combine works from multiple artists, and stream queries that find Shoutcast radio streams. A variety of filters are available to pick just the music you want to hear. In order to actually play the music it finds, Plait automatically hands off a playlist to one of the supported music players, or creates a playlist that you can manually load.
Podget is a simple podcast aggregator optimized for running as a scheduled background job (i.e. cron). It features support for downloading podcasts from RSS and XML feeds, for sorting the podcasts into folders and categories, for importing podcast URLs from iTunes PCAST files and OPML lists, automatic M3U and ASX playlist creation, and automatic cleanup of old podcasts. It also features automatic UTF-16 conversion for podcasts hosted on Windows servers.
Program D is a widely used AIML bot platform. It is feature-complete and well-tested. It supports unlimited multiple bots in a single server instance, and has an open-ended architecture for interacting via any interface imaginable. The standard release provides a J2EE Web application implementation. Drop-in listeners are available for IRC, AIM, and Yahoo!. It includes an automated testing framework for testing knowledge bases, and is packaged with an AIML Test Suite that verifies that the program itself complies to the AIML specification.
The Domain Server is designed to fulfill the role of a Windows NT domain controller, incorporating LDAP to server as a "Directory Server". The RH Linux Domain Controller Project is designed to function with its sister project, the RH Email Server. The goal of this series of projects is to develop 'meta-distributions' that bring together great OSS projects in an easy-to-install, easy-to-administrate manner, the desired end result being that Microsoft Administrators should be able to easily adapt and migrate to Linux without having to be a 'guru'. The collection of projects will aim to match specific Microsoft products (Exchange Server, etc.) in functionality. Current versions include user and group administration as well as migration tools.
SaVi is satellite visualization software that lets you create, run, examine, and modify satellite orbits in two and three dimensions. Simulations of Iridium, Globalstar, Galileo, GPS, and other satellite constellations are included. SaVi requires Tcl and Tk on a system with Unix libraries. SaVi works well with the 3D renderer Geomview. Geomview is optional, though recommended for its 3D rendering capabilities.
Teractualizar is a daemon to synchronize files using SFTP as a secure transfer method. It also features the ability to upload and execute any application or command, which can be used to manage clusters of computers. It requires only baaic Unix commands, an SSH client, and the SFTP service. Currently, the client side of this system only runs on Windows NT (and derivative operating systems).
