What sets Yahoo! Widget Engine apart from other scripting applications is that it takes full advantage of today's advanced graphics.

Toss in some sliding and fading, and these little guys are right at home in Windows XP and Mac OS X.
The format for these Widgets is completely open and easy to learn so creating your own Widgets is an extremely easy task.
For the "skinning" crowd, Yahoo! Widget Engine is a dream come true. You can easily change the look, feel, layout, even functionality of a Widget so that it matches your lifestyle, your desktop, or the pants or skirt you have on that day.

R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues. R can be considered as a different implementation of S. There are some important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered under R.
R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, bioinformatics, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible. The S language is often the vehicle of choice for research in statistical methodology, and R provides an Open Source route to participation in that activity.
One of R's strengths is the ease with which well-designed publication-quality plots can be produced, including mathematical symbols and formulae where needed. Great care has been taken over the defaults for the minor design choices in graphics, but the user retains full control.
R is available as Free Software under the terms of the Free Software Foundation's GNU General Public License in source code form. It compiles and runs out of the box on a wide variety of UNIX platforms and similar systems (including FreeBSD and Linux). It also compiles and runs on Windows 9x/NT/2000 and MacOSX.

OSXGeoCalc is a Structural Geology calculator. It operates on lines and planes, strains, stresses, and drillcore data. Individual computations can be made using the calculator's interface. Multiple computations can be made using text files. Lines and planes can be visualized in a stereonet and stress and strain operations can be visualized in a Mohr diagram.
OSXGeoCalc was made for geologists, but it can be used by anyone who is interested in planes and lines, strains, stresses, and drillcore data (engineers, geotechnicians, physicists, etc.).

Growl-net is based on the growl script shipped with Growl. It adds the ability to send Growls over the net (LAN or Internet), for use with the very common ssh-screen-irssi trilogy, with very easy setup. It uses the Net::Growl perl module, so the machine running irssi doesn't have to be running on a Mac. To use over the 'net, you need to setup port forwarding on your router, and a few other things, but it's fairly straight forward.
