C API to control NexStar compatible telescopes
This library implements the serial commands supported by the Celestron NexStar hand control (HC) and SkyWatcher/Orion SynScan HC. This applies to the Celestron: NexStar GPS, NexStar GPS-SA, NexStar iSeries, NexStar SE Series, NexStar GT, CPC, SLT, Advanced-VX, Advanced-GT, CGE, CGEM etc. SkyWatcher: EQ5, HEQ5, EQ6 (Pro), AZ-EQ5 GT, AZ-EQ6 GT, EQ8 etc. and the corresponding Orion mounts. Communication to the hand control is 9600 bits/sec, no parity and one stop bit via the RS-232 port on the base of the hand control. Communication can be established over TCP/IP if nexbridge is running on the computer connected to the telescope. To control network based telescopes nexbridge must be used on the remote site. https://sourceforge.net/projects/nexbridge/

Fully automated backups to zfs backup hosts
mdbackup is written in perl and basically goes off and connects to a bunch of remote servers (defined in a file called mdtab) via ssh or a smb mount, rsyncs the data to a location on your local zpool and then snapshots the deepest parent zfs filesystem. Another script renames snaps to preserve them as monthlies or annuals and another script purges the remainder of snaps based on a retention policy defined in that severs configuration file, normally 21 nighties, 12 monthly and 7 annuals. It all runs from cronies. It does lots of nice logging and error checking and has nice health check scripts which can be used to integrate this with nagios. it's reasonably mature and stable, I rewrote if from bash to perl a year ago, but in concept it's been running g for 5 years ago, I started it using solaris express developers edition, zfs v10. I have 4 servers running mdbackup and I manage it all using subversion. As for releasing it into the wild I'm happy do do that, but there are

Makes Celestron mounts controlable over the network
This this program transparently proxies the serial commands supported by the Celestron NexStar hand control over the network, so that the telescope can be controlled over the network. It is recommended to be used with libnexstar or NexStarCtl on the remote end. However it proved to be very useful for exporting all kinds of telescope mounts on the network like Sky-Watcher, Meade etc. Nexbridge can be used directly with software like SkySafari or through ttynet (part of the package) or other serial port emulator with software like Stellarium, to control the network exported telescopes. Communication to the hand control is 9600 bits/sec, no parity and one stop bit via the RS-232 port on the base of the hand control. It can publish the service using mDNS as XXX._nexbridge._tcp.local. where XXX is user specified name with "-s" option. Now ttynet tool is added which connects a virtual serial port to a network exported serial port.
The Open-Source Laboratory Information Management System
Open-LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) is an organism independent project management suite for biological projects. It contains management for projects, samples and their related data.
General data-reduction tool for fiber-fed integral-field spectrographs
p3d is a general data-reduction tool for use with fiber-fed integral-field spectrographs (IFSs); although, the spectrum viewer works with spectrum data cubes of any origin. The tool is built about the proprietary software IDL (Harris/EXELIS; see http://www.harrisgeospatial.com), but can be used without any license. Most slowly running loops are implemented in parallelized C (OpenMP).
Group file share with advanced text parsing capability for easy search
Originally created as a church resource sharing system, phpShare&Search allows users to create accounts, share documents, search documents, and like or report documents. phpShare&Search's power comes from its advanced document parser which extracts text from .PDF, .TXT, .DOC, and .DOCX files and its community features of liking resources and reporting them as inappropriate or SPAM. Users also subscribe to weekly updates of new content. User's may choose to download and host/install/configure/modify/manage this code themselves, or contract the code writer to do these functions for them. Contact me for a reasonable quote. eedrew <at> users <dot> sourceforge <dot> net To support future revisions and/or contribute based on the value you found from this code, checkout the External Link drop-down in the menu. Also, if you do not wish to create and maintain your own installation, email email@example.com for a quote on a turn key solution.

rcss makes using (RCS) (S)imple
rcss - rcs simplified. RCS is revision control. While the newer revision controls like git have taken the world by storm, I find as a systems administrator that I don't need all the features of git, I need some thing simple and that stays on my server and is simple and easy to use. RCS fit the bill for me for revision control. RCS didn't make it easy to do things like compare, revert. So I wrote rcss, to make working with rcs MUCH simpler, at least for myself. I hope you find it as useful as I have.
A user read-only access account.
A user read-only access account. Note: As the filesystem is read only, some commands won't work, such as vi that requires write access into /var/tmp to create a temporary file. To setup read-only access a "new root" directory such are "/var/read-only" is created,.Under this directory "/" is mounted as read-only. Here is a diagram of the directory structure. / | | | | var usr adm <etc> | read-only | / (Note: this link is a read-only mount of /) | | | | var usr adm <etc> (Note: these directories are picked up even if they are separate mounted filesystems.) | read-only (Note: no it doesn't get cyclic at this point) When a user logs in, instead of running a shell such as /sbin/sh in the password file, readonlyshell which has suid privileges runs. It changes the root directory for the user to "/var/read-only", sets a couple of shell variables and changes directory to the "/" directory, now "/var/read-only". Lastly it runs a bash shell.

This script was designed to enable quick execution of tools on remote systems for novice or advanced users. The script is designed to remove any of the standard headaches with remoting a display back to a source. Problems such as management of the Display Environmental Variable and scim input defaults. This script is designed to be small concise and useful in any Linux or UNIX environment that supports BASH.
Sar2html is web based frontend for performance monitoring. It converts sar binary data to graphical format and keep historical data in it's library. Both command line and web interface provide same functionality. HPUX 11.11, 11.23, 11,31, Redhat 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, Suse 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and Solaris 5.9, 5.10, 5.11 are supported for performance monitoring. Reporting tool runs on Linux only. If you have customers facing performance problems on operating systems listed above you may send sar2ascii to collect performance data. Then you may plot performance graphics, generate performance report in pdf file format through sar2html. If you are system administrator you may monitor your systems by accessing them though sar2html. Automatically collecting performance data in a predefined time window will be implemented soon. Please remember donation encourages developer to implement more.
