Whiskers is an educational PocketPC application that tries to exploit all the hardware available on most common PDAs providing a link between different features such as GPS-Bluetooth-Wireless. Generally, whiskers was built with radio reconnaissance in mind as help for geocachers or wardrivers, but also as a penetration and audit tool. There is support for in-depth device scanning, triggering actions based on filters when certain devices are in range, centralized GPS logging with search functions for private or public databases, and much more.
Jumper provides an enterprise bookmarking engine for tagging and linking data objects. It lets you search and share high-value data across remote locations using tag metadata (expanded tag fields) to capture knowledge about data in remote data stores. It collects these tag profiles in a knowledge base where user-created tag profiles identify quality data resources, user-contributed tag information adds real-world knowledge about the data resources, and user-created reviews sort out the worthy resources from the inadequate. Other users can search for this data. In addition, they can directly contribute what they know about this data to the knowledge base. It allows the participants to act as a filter for what is valuable and build upon mainstream pursuits, but also uncovers valuable data hidden at the edge.
FusionMaps helps you create animated, interactive, and data-driven Flash maps for your dynamic Web applications. It can display geographical data distributed by category, regions, or entities. Usage examples include statistical display of data, flight routes, office locations, election results, survey results, or business data like "Revenue by Regions" or "Revenue by states". It can plot over 450 maps, including all continents, major countries, and US states. The maps are driven by an XML data source.
SFTP Applet is a JFileUpload add-on that adds SSH File Transfer Protocol support to all JFileUpload applets. It works with basic JFileUpload and all other derived products such as JDiskExplorer, JBatchUpload, JImageFilter, and JImageUpload. It supports SSH2, SFTP versions 0, 1, 2, and 3, resuming, and file management commands.
Stock Volatility Calculator is a spreadsheet that downloads free historical stock data from the Yahoo! database and calculates the historical or realized volatility of the selected stock. The standard deviation of prices is plotted alongside the stock price chart. The user can freely change the stock used by entering the ticker symbol into the appropriate field and performing a fresh download. Users are also able to change the date range used for the stock data, the number of days back to use for the volatility calculation, and the number of volatility days to use.
Minnow is a concurrent programming language with a Ruby-like syntax. It compiles to an executable and uses a companion library to allow fully-rebalanced microthreads. Minnow gains a lot of strength from its actor model, which uses message passing, as opposed to threads and locking, as its concurrency model. Taking a cue from Erlang, actor creation and message passing is extremely lightweight (often on the order of a few nanoseconds). The language has a built-in foreign function interface that allows developers to leverage existing C-based libraries in a simple SWIG-like manner. Minnow's object model is based on "melding" features together to form objects.
Usenet Downloader can be used to retrieve newsgroup articles from NNTP servers. There is a generic NNTP class that can retrieve listings of groups, listing of group articles, and the article headers and bodies. There are other classes that can retrieve listing of groups from several different sites and insert the listings into a MySQL database table. Other classes can retrieve groups stored in the database and retrieve articles of those groups from the NNTP servers.
