Wine is a Microsoft Windows compatibility layer (or program loader)
capable of running Windows applications on i386 and compatible CPUs.
Windows programs running in Wine act as native programs would, running
without the performance or memory usage penalties of an emulator, with
a similar look and feel to other applications on your desktop.
Many applications already work, more or less, including versions of
Microsoft Office and several games.

This is a collection of administration scripts. At the moment it
consists of a script to control rc.d scripts at runtime, a
script that runs common make targets on batches of ports, scripts to set
variables for make jobs (like portconf, but with more possibilities).
And scripts to check for broken packages and missing libraries.

Besides normal functions, it has some great features for programmers --
goto line (ESC-G)
cut & paste cross files (Ctrl-G to see ve.hlp)
block shift left/right (ESC-J/K, Ctrl-G to see ve.hlp)
parenthesis matching (ESC-[)
seaching (Ctrl-S, ESC-n, ESC-p)
(matching start of line, case sensitive/in-sensitive, forward/backward)

undelete lines (ESC-u)
ve is a tiny editor, about 60K. It's woju's favorite UNIX editor.
The most obvious weakness of ve is changing TABs into Spaces. So
please don't use ve to edit TAB-important files, such as Makefile,
sendmail.cf, syslog.conf... etc.
Dnsmasq is a lightweight, easy to configure DNS forwarder and DHCP server. It
is designed to provide DNS and, optionally, DHCP, to a small network. It can
serve the names of local machines which are not in the global DNS. The DHCP
server integrates with the DNS server and allows machines with DHCP-allocated
addresses to appear in the DNS with names configured either in each host or in
a central configuration file. Dnsmasq supports static and dynamic DHCP leases
and BOOTP/TFTP/PXE for network booting of diskless machines.
Dnsmasq is targeted at home networks using NAT and connected to the internet
via a modem, cable-modem or ADSL connection but would be a good choice for any
smallish network (up to 1000 clients is known to work) where low resource use
and ease of configuration are important. -- Simon Kelley

This set of scripts allows to work locally on Subversion-managed
projects using the Mercurial distributed version control system.
Why use Mercurial? You can do local (disconnected) work, pull the
latest changes from the SVN server, manage private branches, submit
patches to project maintainers, etc. And of course you have fast
local operations like "hg log", "hg annotate"...
Three scripts are provided:
* hgimportsvn initializes an SVN checkout which is also a
* hgpullsvn pulls the latest changes from the SVN repository,
and updates the Mercurial repository accordingly. It can
be run multiple times.
* hgpushsvn pushes your local Mercurial commits back to the SVN repository.
Zabbix is an enterprise-class open source distributed monitoring solution.
Zabbix is software that monitors numerous parameters of a network and the
health and integrity of servers. Zabbix uses a flexible notification
mechanism that allows users to configure e-mail based alerts for virtually
any event. This allows a fast reaction to server problems. Zabbix offers
excellent reporting and data visualisation features based on the stored
data. This makes Zabbix ideal for capacity planning.

The transmission-daemon is a daemon-based Transmission session that can
be controlled via RPC by transmission-remote (included) and other
Transmission BiTtorrent client such as GTK+ and CLI interface.
Transmission has been built from the ground up to be a lightweight, yet
powerful BitTorrent client. Its simple, intuitive interface is designed
to integrate tightly with whatever computing environment you choose to
use. Transmission strikes a balance between providing useful functionality
without feature bloat. Furthermore, it is free for anyone to use or modify.
autossh is a program to start a copy of ssh and monitor it, restarting
it as necessary should it die or stop passing traffic.
The original idea and the mechanism were from rstunnel (Reliable SSH
Tunnel). With this version the method changes: autossh uses ssh to
construct a loop of ssh forwardings (one from local to remote, one
from remote to local), and then sends test data that it expects to
get back. (The idea is thanks to Terrence Martin.)
