Dvbnrc is a TCP Daemon written in Perl that allows you to remotely control a Nokia Mediamaster running DVB2000 through a serial nullmodem cable. It allows you to telnet to the box, get the list of available TV/radio channels, change tha channel, show the current one, or change the text of the LCDisplay.
vzhaipd (scoyo's Virtuozzo/OpenVZ HA IP Daemon) is a set of mount/umount Container scripts for Parallels Virtuozzo or OpenVZ that will make sure a HA IP is always present on one of two or more Containers. You can think of it as the poor man's VRRP for Virtuozzo and OpenVZ Containers. Use it for general service availability, software load-balancer failover, etc.
