Smitten differs from traditional media centres in three major ways. It contains no media playback at all, which makes it very small (and suitable for porting to embedded systems) and quick to initialize. It targets a TV display and interface, which means there's less information on any particular screen, and a much simpler control interface consisting of left, right, up, down, and select. No mouse is required. It is also highly skinnable, and cross-platform to most systems. Essentially, it provides an easy-to-use menu system that allows the user to navigate a hierarchy of files, and view them using an (external) tool.
Dnsbalance is a program to forward DNS requests to a number of servers, and to balance requests in a round-robin fashion over these servers. It uses source port randomization, worker IP address checks, and transaction ID verification. It may be used as a prefix gateway in front of DNS servers that don't randomize local ports and hence are potentially vulnerable to DNS cache poisoning attacks.
faceservice.cgi is a CGI program for detecting faces on the Web. You can post an image or an image URL to it, and the program will respond to you with the locations of the faces it has found. faceservice uses the OpenCV library to do the actual detection, libcurl for downloading of images, and libcgicc for the CGI interfacing. It has only been tested to work on Linux.
Foxtract is a simple Outlook Express e-mail message extractor that works with corrupted data files. Instead of trying to rebuild or read from the tree structure that Outlook Express uses internally, it scans the whole data file to find all message segments, which it then uses to determine the head segment of a message and reconstruct it.
mutest is a micro unit testing framework for C (with some C++ support). It is easy to use and has no dependencies. The idea is simple: a source file is a test suite, and a function is a test case (special functions can be used for test suite initialization and termination) that can can have several checks. Checks comes in 2 flavors: one that only prints an error, and one that terminates the current test case too. A (normally) automated test program run all the test suites and prints some stats. It fails (returns non-zero) if any test suite fails.
Qassir is a graphical frontend to manage encrypted folders. At the moment, it only supports mounting and unmounting folders encrypted with EncFS. Future releases will provide access to all of EncFS's functionality, i.e. creation of encrypted folders, changing the password for a folder, etc.
