The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of a computer client or server to another server or reference time source, such as a radio or satellite receiver or modem. It provides client accuracies typically within a millisecond on LANs and up to a few tens of milliseconds on WANs relative to a primary server synchronized to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) via a Global Positioning Service (GPS) receiver, for example.
Dateutils are a bunch of tools that revolve around fiddling with dates and times in the command line, with a strong focus on use cases that arise when dealing with large amounts of financial data. Their target market is shell scripts that need date calculations or calendar conversions, and as such they are highly pipe-able and modeled after their well-known cousins (e.g. dtest vs. test, or dgrep vs. grep).
Gameclock is a fairly simple application designed to track the time spent thinking by the players during a chess game. Various clock engines are available (speed chess, fisher chess, board games, or hourglass). The graphical interface is keyboard-driven and is intended to be minimal and simple. The code is made to be extensible to other game types.

Ace snow creates a snow falling effect for Titanium apps. It creates animated flakes which fall on the application window starting from a random position at the top of the screen and disappear when they fall below the top of the screen. The flakes animation can be paused and resumed any time. The image, quantity, and speed of the snow flakes are configurable parameters.
Gideros Countdown class displays (and updates) the time left until a time provided by the user. The time can be provided in any time units, and they will be recalculated to specified time units. It is possible to specify which units or text will appear in countdown and which text must be hidden if a certain unit reaches 0 by using labels for each time unit.
