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.
climm (CLI-based Multi-Messenger) is a portable, small, yet powerful console-based ICQ and XMPP client. It supports password changing, auto-away, creation of new accounts, and other features that makes it a very complete yet simple client. It is able to send and receive messages from the ICQ network, list users that are offline and online (including their online status), search for users by email address, and look up basic (name, UIN, email) information. climm was formerly known as mICQ.
OSS provides sound card drivers for most popular sound cards under Linux, *BSD, Solaris, UnixWare, OpenServer, AIX, HPUX, LynxOS, VxWorks, and Tru64. These drivers support digital audio, MIDI, synthesizers, and mixers found on sound cards. These sound drivers comply with the Open Sound System API specification. OSS provides a user-friendly GUI which makes the installation of sound drivers and configuration of sound cards very simple. It supports over 200 brand name sound cards, and provides automatic sound card detection, Plug-n-Play support, support for PCI audio soundcards, and support for full duplex audio.
Keep in Touch aims to be a secure IM system for multiple platforms. It supports its own XML-based protocol as well as ICQ and AIM (toc). It provides encrypted connections between the server and client aswell as encrypted chat on all supported networks. The client can store contacts on the server allowing users to keep their contact lists between different locations.
ROOT is an OO framework for large-scale scientific data analysis and data mining. It contains an efficient hierarchical OO database, a C++ interpreter, advanced statistical analysis, visualization, introspection, documentation, networking, and GUI classes. The command/scripting language is C++, and large scripts can be compiled and dynamically linked in. Using the PROOF (Parallel ROOT Facility) extension, large databases can be analyzed in parallel. The system runs on all known POSIX platforms, Windows, and MacOS X.
bttvgrab is a program for grabbing video sequences using a bt848-based frame grabber card (e.g. Hauppauge WinTV, Miro PCTV...). The goal of bttvgrab is to provide high-quality grabbing suitable for video recording. Currently, this is accomplished by trying hard not to leave out a single frame, and to catch temproary delays by buffering several frames. In the future, synchronized sound will be part of it. Then you can create mpeg movies using mpeg2enc, the output files will be prepared for that, so that the conversion can be done by a simple shell script.
Arkeia Network Backup is designed for organizations that require fast, easy-to-use, and affordable data protection. It backs up critical data to disk, tape, and cloud storage. Arkeia protects all major virtual platforms including VMware, Hyper-V, XenServer, and more than 200 physical platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Netware, most UNIX flavors, and BSDs. The company’s source-side Progressive Deduplication technology helps users realize better performance at a lower cost by reducing data volumes. Arkeia’s deduplication is crucial to accelerating replication of on-premise backups to private or public clouds.
