Noexcuses is a disaster recovery utility. It makes cron jobs persist when faced with transient remote errors. It makes cron jobs persist across reboots of the local cron host. It identifies and runs cron jobs scheduled while the cron host was down. It can mirror its state to protect the above from disk failure. It supports relocation of cron jobs to another cron host. It lets you report, examine, cancel, and run outstanding cron jobs. In short, it eliminates much tedious disaster recovery work.

Archive2iso takes a directory tree and randomizes the files in the tree to stripe the files across several ISO files that can be archived or burned off to a CD. The ISO files are generated by calling the CDiso.pm module. It reads an array generated by an INCLUDE LIST so the ISO file can be made with mkisofs. The intended use is to stripe files across multiple CD/DVD randomly so if one disc is damaged all the files that were in the same directory will not be lost since files are spread across multiple disks. The actual files themselves are not split; all files remain in their original state.
