slkvm is an application to provide some system tools to work with clustering and virtualization. It focuses on depending on as few external tools as possible but to also support as many virtualization technologies as possible. It works in a cluster environment where heartbeat runs virtual machines of nodes that have failed. It builds an "unheaded" cluster to avoid having a clear point of failure. It is able to build a two node cluster with everything redundant. It avoids compiling a new kernel or newer version of applications, so you can benefit from Debian security updates.
smupcheck, which stands for Smart Update Checker, checks Web sites for updates automatically, even if they don't offer an RSS feed. It is a very basic tool, and does not offer advanced features such as checking password-protected Web sites, highlighting changes, or filtering results.
Snowfence is a simple no-configuration-required Linux iptables firewall for the Sharp Zaurus. It limits the ability of potential attackers to access the Zaurus's services remotely while still allowing the Zaurus's legitimate local user to make use of the network and USB cradle as usual.
sortsamples is a utility that solves the problem of having many sample CD/sample library directories with each having kick, hi-hat, snare, etc. folders (leading to sampledirectorychaosmadness). With many sample directories, you ll be slapped around many directories hunting for kicks/hi-hats etc. This utility creates symbolic links to directories which are similar. This way, you can have all your kick. It was made because external Sample organizing utilities can also become a pain, because usually your DAW also has a sample browser in it. It would be nice to have structure at the source: the filesystem. This is a crazy effort to combine similar folders and categorize automatically.
