SuckMT is a multithreaded replacement for suck that uses client NNTP to download news messages from a news server. It automatically balances the download of all news items over several NNTP socket connections, thus actually using a lot more of the available bandwidth. SuckMT includes kill/keep rules that are regular expressions which can optionally be case insensitive. Statistics are kept how often and when a kill/keep rule was matched for the last time. To upload new messages back to the NNTP server you will still need tools from the suck package.
4W WebMerge generates static HTML pages from any database or spreadsheet, including Microsoft Access, FileMaker Pro, and Excel.

PyBackend is a Python module which provides object persistence through a relational database backend. You need not write SQL queries within your Python class to store or retrieve object-attributes. If your data model allows you to view attributes of your objects as columns of tables in an RDBMS, then PyBackend is for you. It allows the developer to map individual classes to corresponding databases. Hence, an application using PyBackend can use multiple databases to populate its objects; all transparently to the developer. It frees the application programmer even from the task of creating and managing database connections.

Fast Track Systems Monitor (FTMON) is a monitoring engine that can be integrated with other systems management vendor solutions. It also defines a standard that allows applications/devices to be instrumented rapidly. The intent is to allow writing an FTMON monitor for virtually every device or application, and that any detected problems from these monitors will be able to be forwarded to any systems management solution. It is currently completely configuration file based.
The Robot Auto Racing Simulator (RARS) consists of a simulation of the physics of cars racing on a track, a graphic display of the race, and a separate control program (robot "driver") for each car.
