App=Firewall Builder;Security;;NetCitadel, LLC;;GPL;Graphical;firewall;Firewall Builder consists of object-oriented GUI and set of policy compilers<br>for various firewall platforms. In Firewall Builder, firewall policy is a set<br>of rules, each rule consists of abstract objects which represent real network<br>objects and services (hosts, routers, firewalls, networks, protocols).<br>Firewall Builder helps user maintain database of objects and allows policy<br>editing using simple drag-and-drop operations.<br><br>Preferences and objects databases are stored in XML format. <br>GUI and policy compilers are completely independent. Support for a new firewall<br>platform can be added to GUI without any changes done to the program, although<br>new policy compiler must be written. This provides for consistent abstract<br>model and the same GUI for different firewall platforms. Currently three most<br>popular free firewalls are supported: ipchains, iptables and ipfilter.<br>Because of this, Firewall Builder can be used to manage firewalls built on<br>variety of platforms including, but not limited to, Linux running ipchains or<br>iptables and FreeBSD or Solaris running ipfilter. <br><br>WWW:<br>;;1385067347;;Firewall Builder GUI and policy compilers<br>;

+App=FoldingAtHome;Biology;;Stanford University;;Other;Text;computation,distributed;Folding@home is a distributed computing project -- people from throughoutthe world download and run software to band together to make one of thelargest supercomputers in the world. Every computer takes the projectcloser to our goals.Folding@home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributedcomputing, to simulate problems millions of times more challenging thanpreviously achieved.Protein folding is linked to disease, such as Alzheimers, ALS,Huntingtons, Parkinsons disease, and many Cancers. Moreover, whenproteins do not fold correctly (i.e. misfold), there can be seriousconsequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimers,Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntingtons, Parkinsons disease, and manycancers and cancer-related syndromes.;;1385486526;;Distributed client for Protein Folding;

App=Forkbomb;Benchmarks;;;;Unknown;Text;benchmark,cpu,testing;forkbomb is tool for stress testing. It can create many processes<br>using fork(), bring up some zombies, allocate memory using<br>realloc() and accesses this memory. It has different switches for<br>fine-tuning operation. While classic fork() bomb is good only for<br>fun and QA release testing, running multiple memory-eaters can be<br>useful for determining maximum memory which can be given to<br>servers (bind or squid) without taking machine down. You can<br>test different operation systems with this tool and see how they<br>are handling the load.<br><br>WWW:<br>;;1385068820;;System stress testing tool<br>;
App=Formido;Games;;;;GPL;Graphical;game,arcade;Formido is one of those games, where you are loaded with some guns<br>and you go shooting different things. 'Things' in this case are<br>big, ugly, - not green though - alien insects. The idea is to kill<br>as many of those bastards as possible. Eventually they will overcome<br>you, but struggle as long as you can. There are some power-ups to<br>aid you in your honorable quest. Keep in mind, that those critters<br>are rather tough and generally do nasty things when in close range<br>of any player-characters.<br><br>WWW:<br>;;1385068968;;2D kill-em all with 3D rendered graphics<br>;
