Easy way to use the 1-wire sensors like temperature, voltage and more.
OWFS -- 1-Wire file system. Use the Dallas 1-Wire and iButton chips with standard filesystem commands. Create temperature loggers. Monitor everything. OWHTTPD -- same system, only used as a light weight web server. OWFS is also ported to embedded routers, Mac OSX and Windows. Basically you can use these inexpensive little sensors and other chips with very simple wiring to sense and control the physical environment. The interface is very flexible -- everything from a web browser, to read and writing directly to the chip's "file" to integrating with your programs -- even over the internet. There is a growing number of 1-wire sensors: temperature, voltage, humidity, light, ultraviolet, pressure, thermisters, thermocouples, programmable microcontrollers, relays, lights, LCD panels, etc.
Python GUI program to work with Geiger counters like GMC-300/320/500
GeigerLog is a Python based GUI program to work with GQ Electronic's GMC-300 / 320 and now also GMC-500 Geiger counters. Available as "scripts" to run where a proper Python environment exists, or as "bundle", which brings its own Python environment (but currently runs on Linux only). GeigerLog allows reading of Geiger counter data, logging to file, printing to screen and plotting as graph, showing Count Rate vs. Time, both in various, selectable units. The history stored on the Geiger counter's internal memory can be extracted, analyzed and graphed in the same way. The graph is live auto-updated and allows various customization. Time ranges for analysis can be set manually or per left/right mouse click. GeigerLog can control some functions of a connected counter (limited to GMC-3xx counters!). Advanced analysis of the data now permits count rate histograms with Poisson fit for quality control of data, and FFT analysis for any periodic signal hidden within the data.
A keyboard layout that's worth learning.
Qwpr (pronounced "qwipper", named for the first four keys) is a keyboard layout that's easy to learn (only 11 keys move from their qwerty positions), easy to type (32% better by the Carpalx metric), practical (programmer's punctuation, arrow keys, and all major accented characters easily accessed without moving your hands off the three main rows), and very complete (over 1000 unicode characters and combinations available). The project also includes the tools I used to translate this layout from OSX to Windows format; linux tools pending.
Simple graphical usb reset tool
USB resetting is the closest equivalent to physically unplugging and re-plugging a USB device. you might ask , How is that useful ? well the use cases will be different from user to another. In my case, it helps with accessing my slightly damaged old USB external hard drive after a mount in unix-like OSes without any i/o issues. Another one is, loop resetting my USB headset solves some weird glitching sound i constantly have while using them. Those are my special use cases. There most be more, that it can help with.

Quickly rename large quantities of USB drives, just plug in and unplug
A script designed to rename large quantities of USB drives or other portable hard drives. When the script is running, all the user needs to do is this: * Plug in the portable device * Wait for about a second * Unplug the portable device * Repeat The script is immediately ready to accept the next drive for renaming. No need to manually eject the drive. The script requires that all devices initially have the same name, though it can be fairly easily extended. Even though there is no GUI it is easy to use, also for users with no programming experience.
Stylus Toolbox is an Epson inkjet printer utility. It shows ink levels, allows you to clean and align your print heads, and to perform a nozzle check. As it is a graphical front-end for escputil, it supports all Epson printers supported by Gutenprint.
