Lastest OS Releases (freshcode)
Prebackup
v1.1
Prebackup is not a backup program, but a tool you use before your actual backup, to better organize your directories and set what will and will not end up in your backup. Usually when you backup your home or a portion of it, many files are included that don't need a backup, especially large files like videos, ISO installation images, installed games, etc. Prebackup lets you fine-tune the list of directories and exclusions in several ways: - Scan a "snapshot" of the directories you want to backup, with information on the size of each directory and subdirectory - Set directories to be excluded and rescan a new snapshot - Save a snapshot for future reference - Compare the current snapshot with a previously saved one, to check if and where abnormal increases in size have been introduced since the last backup, and possibly exclude new directories - Generate output files to be used by your backup program, like a list of excluded directories
weresync
v1.0.7
Making your backup drives into were-drives, transforming them into clones at will. WereSync incrementally backups up hard drives using rsync. Backups can be run while you use your computer. As icing on the cake, you can boot your clone just like your normal computer.

v2.67.2 (build 170726)
LimeSurvey is a web application that interacts with MySQL, MSSQL, or Postgres to develop surveys, publish surveys, and collect responses to surveys. Once a survey has been created, data can be inserted into the survey either by a "pretty" public screen which presents each question one at a time, or by a quick and nasty data entry screen. It includes the capacity to generate individualized "tokens", so that invitations can be issued to participants. It also has the capacity to set conditions on whether questions will display (branching), numerous question types, and a basic statistics function.
