  1. vid2mkv

    My digital camera can also produce movies, like most camera’s these days. It saves them in AVI format, with relatively poor mjpeg compression and uncompressed sound.

    So I wrote this python script to convert these AVI files to Theora / Vorbis streams in a matroška container. It takes the video ...

  2. vid2mp4

    Videos with H.264 video and AAC sound im MP4 containers seem to strike a very good size performance balance. So I modified a copy of vid2mkv to use ffmpeg to create this kind of files instead.

    To speed up the processing of multiple files, this script runs the conversions ...

  3. onepad

    This is a set of programs to encrypt files using one-time-pad encryption. This is an old but theoretically impossible to easily break way of encryption. I came across this method in Neal Stephenson’s Cryptonomicon.

    It works by XOR-ing every byte in the cleartext message with a byte in ...

    The C version is still current, although it has limited functionality compared with the Python version.

    Introduction

    The origin of this software was found in the desire of ...

  5. Managing configuration files with ‘deploy’

    The deploy script is a program for managing configuration files. This script grew out of my need for a multi-functional installer for configuration files. I tend to keep those files in a separate git repository rather than changing my $HOME into a git repository.

  6. Stltools

    From the release of version 3.2, the py-stl software has been renamed to stltools. The reason I made this change mostly has to do with how FreeBSD handles packages. Programs that require an interpreter are prefixed with its name and version. So py-stl would become py27-py-stl, which would be ...

  7. TeXcalc

    As an engineer, I often do diverse calculations that I want to save in my logbooks which I write in LaTeX. Up to now I’ve either formatted those by hand or used the listings package to include calculations made in IPython.
