fsv, the 3D File System Visualizer, allows you to view a collection of directories and files as three-dimensional geometry. It represents all or part of a filesystem as a collection of blocks of varying sizes, each labeled with a filename, and arranged in a manner consistent with the original directory structure. fsv can visualize any arbitrarily large collection of files, limited only by memory and hardware constraints. Program features include an integrated 2D interface, intelligent camera handling, and extensive use of animation. fsv requires OpenGL.
Light Speed! is an OpenGL-based program which illustrates the effects of special relativity on the appearance of moving objects. When an object accelerates past a few million meters per second, these effects begin to grow noticeable, becoming more and more pronounced as the speed of light is approached. These relativistic effects are viewpoint-dependent, and include shifts in length, object hue, brightness and shape.
Volume.app is a simple and attractive audio volume control program in the dockapp form factor, intended for use with X window managers such as Window Maker, Blackbox, and Afterstep. It differs from many other dockapp mixer programs in that it does not require precise control of the mouse to perform volume adjustments. Its simplistic design is also such that it can only monitor/control one mixer source at a time.
Looks like Alexander's back in the game! He's now distributing version 2.2, written against Qt 4, from the official TuxCards Web site.
Newer version by a different author
TuxCards is a great little program, but Alexander hasn't
released anything beyond version 1.2 (ca. 2004).
A fellow named Amit Chaudhary has added a few
enhancements (most notably, encryption) and bugfixes,
and as of this writing is distributing a version 2.1.1 from
his Web site:
Official or not, this may be of interest to some folks.
