feed2wmmenu is a tool to generate X11 window manager menus from RSS, ATOM, or other news feeds. It was inspired by "fvwm-menu-headlines", which generates static refreshed FVWM menus from RSS or other kinds of news feeds. The drawback of the FVWM related script is the use of simple regular expressions. feed2wmmenu polls the feeds using curl, utilizing the Last-Modified header so that the feeds are potentially not fetched if they didn't change since the last poll. It produces diverse output formats by using corresponding XSLT stylesheets.
Exchanges is a Bash CGI script for collaborative creation of manuscripts. It allows new entries to be injected between existing entries. Owners of entries may edit or delete them.

The MagicBootUSB bootable image makes it possible to boot Linux systems from a USB storage device even on computers whose BIOS do not support USB booting. It will always load the correct kernel and initrd from the USB disk; it does not need to be changed for running different kernel versions or systems.

rules2mrtg is a tool that creates MRTG data traffic graphs derived from iptables's internal traffic statistics for the local machine for every configured IP number/ethernet alias. You can also define ports or port ranges to be monitored per IP address. This avoids problems with using SNMP and aliased interfaces.
Ambit uses Bash brace expansion to expand and list hostnames or commands. Ambit is first and foremost meant to be a general purpose hostlist enumerator for use by other applications or scripts. Ambit can be used to manage HostGroups from the context of a user, a system, or a network. Ambit is also able to enumerate and execute commands that contain expandable elements. Commands passed to Ambit are expanded into separate statements and executed synchronously. This means Ambit can expand and execute just about anything on the command-line and often works in situations where Bash brace expansion would probably fail.
