Syncables Desktop enables you to easily sync, migrate, access, and publish content between Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs and portable storage devices. More than just documents, it syncs your music, photos, videos, email, and even browser bookmark "favorites". It automatically recognizes other Syncables PCs on a network, making it very easy to collaborate on documents or share media between PCs. You can even turn your network into a virtual media hub, with shared media accessible for playback on any Syncables networked PC. Popular Websites like Facebook, YouTube, and SmugMug are also integrated right into the application, so once you are signed in, you have automatic access to your online account with these sites. Just drag selected media to the Website icon for auto-upload, or click on the Website icon and play back all your posted media right from within Syncables Desktop.
Libpuppy is a library version of the puppy tool, which is used for accessing Topfield DVB tuners (and possibly others) via their USB port. Its main features are listing and retrieving contents of the HD in the device. It allows you to write your own utilities that interface with the device. It comes with two tools, puppy-dir and puppy-get, in addition to the original (mostly unmodified) puppy-tool.
a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.
