Window Maker dockapp that displays the time and date
WMTime displays the time and date and gives you some nice additional features too. It is intended for docking in Window Maker. . It currently provides: . * the time and date; * a realtime morphing interface (analog <> digital mode); * auto-scaled and anti-aliased hands; * localization: displaying the day and date in various languages; * three user-defined commands to launch.
free, networked version of T*tris
Netris is a free, networked variant of Tetris. . One-player mode is a tad boring at the moment because it never gets any faster and there's no scoring. This will be rectified at some point. . Two players can play against each other. If you fill two or three lines with one piece your opponent gets respectively one or two unfilled lines at the bottom of his screen. If you fill even four lines with one piece your opponent will get four unfilled lines. . This version at least partially supports robots. You can find the protocol description in the documentation and a sample robot in the examples.
netcat like tool with nice features to transport files over network
Netrw is a simple (but powerful) tool for transporting data over the internet. Its main purpose is to simplify and speed up file transfers to hosts without an FTP server. It can also be used for uploading data to some other user. It is something like one-way netcat (nc) with some nice features concerning data transfers. Netrw can compute and check message digest (MD5, SHA-1, and some others) of all the data being transferred, it can also print information on progress and average speed. At the end it sums up the transfer.
graphical frontend for netwox
Netwag is a graphical front end for netwox which contains more than 200 tools. Netwag permits one to easily: . - search amongst tools proposed in netwox - construct command line - run tools - keep an history of commands
Efficient sequence alignment of full genomes
MUMmer is a system for rapidly aligning entire genomes, whether in complete or draft form. For example, MUMmer 3.0 can find all 20-basepair or longer exact matches between a pair of 5-megabase genomes in 13.7 seconds, using 78 MB of memory, on a 2.4 GHz Linux desktop computer. MUMmer can also align incomplete genomes; it handles the 100s or 1000s of contigs from a shotgun sequencing project with ease, and will align them to another set of contigs or a genome using the NUCmer program included with the system. If the species are too divergent for DNA sequence alignment to detect similarity, then the PROmer program can generate alignments based upon the six-frame translations of both input sequences.
Simple network configuration tool
Network-config is a simple and easy to use program that helps configuring the network interfaces for linux-based operating systems. It allows have multiple configurations for the same computer and to easy configure NAT for internet sharing. It can also be used to scan for wireless networks. It is written in perl and uses gtk2+ but also works as a command line program.
