Pwdrc executes a set of commands each time you walk in a directory with "cd". You can associate a different set of commands to each directory. Each time you walk in a directory the file .`whoami`_pwdrc is read and executed (if it exists), thus if your user name is "foo", your pwdrc file is ".foo_pwdrc".
Closebracket lets you define multiple shell actions in a single command to speed up the typing of the most repetitive shell commands. It includes ']' and '][' commands, which are located near the "Enter" key and are easy to type quickly. They invoke primary and secondary actions respectively.
XChestival is an improved version of xchat_speak designed for Italian. It lets xchat and irssi "speak" through festival. It comes with a script for xchat and irssi and the Italian phonemes. The scripts have some useful features like channels and query filtering and string substitution.
Shmplayer executes a single instance of mplayer in the background and controls it through a FIFO. It supports many of the features you'll find in XMMS and it is easily extendible. However, unlike XMMS, shmplayer doesn't require an X server to be active. You can even use it from a remote shell. Shmplayer has also some unique features like "jgrep" that lets you jump to the first "grepped" match of the playlist.
Wocvim is a WoC client for Vim. WoC is a protocol which enables the use of hyperlinks in plain ASCII texts. The links can point to local or remote locations. The protocol is specifically designed to support source code, but it can be used in any text. For source code, it's also possible to use ad-hoc tag generators like cscope and ctags.
awm is a custom window manager. It's small, functional, and fast. It is based on dwm and is just ~1800 lines of code. It is based on the workspace concept, but the space is two dimensional. Each time you move to a new, unvisited workspace, a terminal window is automatically launched, emulating TTYs' behavior. You can delete an entire workspace, killing all the windows launched in it. You can even delete an entire dimension, deleting all the residing workspaces. To resize a window, you just Alt+RightClick on any point of the screen, and the window will immediately resize. The windows can be ordered on the fly with the tiling algorithm of dwm, and then restored. This is useful to get a quick glimpse of the current workspace. A proc-like interface can be used retrieve information from awm.
Gdadin is an Inkscape effect. It creates complex drawings from simple rules. The rules are defined with an intuitive GUI based on the Copy & Paste principle. The Gdadin concept and its main design have been heavily inspired by Cfdg (Context Free Design Grammar), a programming language used to compose and create drawings. Almost all drawings created with Cfdg can be reproduced with Gdadin.
Scons is elegant, Make isn't
It works, it is python and elegant, it is portable, and above all it's easy.
Why do I have to use Make?
In 50 lines of Make I've done 1/10 of what I've done with scons.
Surely there are a lot of nice alternatives.
Stop the autoconf insanity ;)

"What's in a Name? that which we call a Rose,
By any other name would smell as sweet." William Shakespeare
Is it so important the name for you?
