Userinfo is a console utility to display a variety of information about a local user. It uses loadable modules to perform different tasks, which separate the output with a field deliminator. Some may find it useful in shell scripts to gather information that might be tedious by other methods.

vdbmaster is a simple program to ease the process of burning movies to a DVD. It uses growisofs to write the disc, and the VideoDB database for selecting the movies to write and keeping records of where your movies are stored. Once the DVD has been written, vdbmaster updates the movies in VideoDB with the name of the disc where they have been burnt. Then, it asks whether you want to remove the original files from your hard drive. It correctly handles movies spanning more than one file, as well subtitle files, as long as the movie filename (without the extension) is the same. The code is clean, small, and easily customizable.
vdr2dvd is a simple script, handling all needed steps to create a DVD out of a VDR recording, including the burn process itself. The script merges multiple .vdr files to a big one per DVD title, converts it into a PS stream using ds.jar, multiplexes to the correct DVD-stream, creates the DVD structure, uses mkisofs to create the ISO image and uses dvdrecord to burn the image to the disc.
