Short application written in C to convert units from the metrical to the
Imperial system, back and forth. Believe it or not, after 7 years living
here in the USA (and around 10 years living in countries that still use the
Imperial system, since I lived in Ireland before), I still cannot convert
these easily. Hopefully, one of these days Americans will discover how
great the metric system is, and the British and Irish will also start
driving on the right-hand side.
The homeip shell script helps you stay updated about the IP that your Cisco
675 DSL router is assigned when configured in PPP mode. It automatically
sends an email to whichever email address you specify in the script if you
configure it as a cron job in your Linux system. I don't see why it would
not work on other Unices too, but I didn't give it a try.
I didn't write this. I simply packaged the application as an RPM package
that can be installed in Red Hat Linux. This is a security application to
detect rootkits that may have been installed in your system. Pretty cool.
Give it a try.
The hey script is a simple shell script that works on Linux and IRIX to send
messages to other X users on a network. It is widely used by SGI employees
to send messages to each other. It was written by Jeremy Shawley, and I
simply fixed some bugs and built the RPM.
The osptools are a collection of scripts that I wrote for Open Spaces
Technologies. Basically, they allow you to do pretty basic stuff: kill
Netscape in an orderly fashion whenever it is bothering you much, make a
backup copy of its most important files, clean up its cache, clean up the
directories where RPMs get built by default in Red Hat (they tend to clutter
really quickly), prepare an overall system report that gets sent to whichever
email address you specify, etc.
Small tool written in Tcl/Expect to allow the synchronization of jpilot
database files using a regular FTP account. It is a poor man's synchronization
tool for those people who like jpilot as a PIM application but do not have
a Palm Pilot device.
A shell script to automate the process of downloading Mozilla's source code,
building and installing the resulting binaries on your system.
