fsc2 is a program for controlling spectrometers. Experiments are done by interpretation of scripts written in a simple language, EDL. Devices are handled via modules in order to allow easy integration of new devices. More than 50 devices are supported, connected via serial port, GPIB, LAN, or USB as well as data acquisition cards, etc. The state of an experiment can be remotely monitored via a built-in Web server.

maildirproc is a program that processes one or several existing mail boxes in the maildir format. It is primarily focused on mail sorting, which means moving, copying, forwarding, and deleting mail according to a set of rules. It can be seen as an alternative to procmail, but instead of being a delivery agent (which wants to be part of the delivery chain), maildirproc only processes mail which has already been delivered. That is a feature, not a bug.
liboping is a C library for measuring network latency using ICMP echo requests. It can send to and receive packets from multiple hosts in parallel, which is nice for monitoring applications. Both IPv4 and IPv6 are supported transparently for the programmer and user. A program called oping is included to show the simplicity and potential of the library and provide the functionality at the command line.
Oggify is a program that was written to help manage and convert FLAC audio files into other formats. It ships with MP3 and Ogg Vorbis support. It is intended to allow a user to have a directory tree of FLAC files, and be able to update a tree of MP3 or Ogg files as they add new FLAC files. It has an easy command-line interface with a variety of adjustable settings. It also features a plugin architecture to make it easy to add support for more formats.
Turn Watcher is a tool based on Dungeons & Dragons rules. It is used to track the initiative of your players and monsters. It includes an option to roll initiative on every round, roll will, listen, and spot, and it has a status column that shows you the current status of your players. When you enter a player or monster, you also enter all of its modifiers, so the computer can take care of rolling all the dice for you. Still want to roll initiative? You can simply order the characters with the Move Up and Move Down options.
