MySQL Quota Daemon is a lightweight tool for limiting database sizes. As the MySQL server has no support for preventing a disk from getting filled up, an external one is needed. Other solutions are often bloated or too obscure to use. This one keeps a low profile, being both nice to the system it runs on and easy to use. A basic front end for simple management and informing of any quota violation is included.
ZRacer is a console car racing game. It has a curses based semi-graphical interface, a random track generator, editable settings, and supports hotseat multiplayer. The rules are simple: the higher on the screen, the faster you ride. Don't crash into rocks, curbs, or your opponent, and be the first across the finish line.
TclDTrace is a binding of libdtrace to the Tcl programming language. DTrace is a system profiling suite created by Sun Microsystems. It allows the user to profile a program without modifying its text, or even without the need to distract it if it is running. It consists of a set of library hooks called "providers", a set of tools, a C API (libdtrace), and its own specially crafted scripting language called D. A Tcl binding to libdtrace will allow users to run D scripts and process their results directly from Tcl.
Deduplicator is a simple and efficient data deduplicator that works by hard linking files that have the same content. It is ideal for reducing the size of backups. It can save and restore intermediate results, so you can run it in a few short intervals, and allows you to review changes before they are committed to disk.
Fossil is a distributed software configuration management/version control system built with reliability and ease of use on mind. It comes with integrated bug tracking and a wiki. It is distributed as a single static binary for easy installation and the ability to run in a chrooted environment. Other highlights include a Web interface, autosync, simple networking, and CGI support.
While the OSS community converges to Git, with the Python bunch branching to Mercurial, the typical workplace is stuck with Subversion. The author's DVCS of choice is Fossil. These are all fine projects, with their own pros and cons, but what you usually want is just a tool to store your code tree snapshot in a safe place. They can all do that, but their language differs a tiny bit. repo brings them all down to the common root. It works by detecting which VCS are you using right now and calling that, applying necessary subcommand translation if needed.
PHDoc is a version of Markdoc adapted to the needs of academics. It aims to provide a lightweight alternative to large database-powered wiki systems, giving easy management of Web sites with a clean typographic layout, inspired by the beauty of LaTeX-made documents. LaTeX math markup and automatic hyphenation are supported. Scaffolding exemplifies everything that is needed for a personal website, without any technical prerequisites like HTML or CSS.
