Marbles is very similiar to Atomix and was heavily inspired by it. The goal is to create a more or less complex figure out of single marbles within a time limit to reach the next level. Sounds easy?

Online Chess Club is a PHP chess game. It allows you to play any number of games simultaneously against your friends online using only a Web browser, provided you own some PHP-ready Web space. It recognizes checkmate, stalemate, and allows you to draw a game. In addition, finished games may either be archived or deleted.
JWordTrainer is a generic tool that helps you to memorize words for basically any pair of languages. You must first add the words from your individual lessons to input files, then specify how many words from which input files you want to be asked. The program will randomly show words and a button that shows the translation. Pali-English is included as an example language pair, along with a README that explains in detail how to add new words and languages.
