Cycle is a calendar for women. Given a cycle length or statistics for
several periods, it can calculate the days until menstruation, the

and define the d.o.b. of a child. It allows the user to write notes
and helps to supervise the administration of hormonal contraceptive
tablets.

Possibilities of the program:

– Calculate days of menstruation, based on the length of the cycle
or on statistics of previous periods.
– Calculate days of “safe” sex, fertile period and day to ovulations.
– Definition of D.O.B. (Date Of Birth) of a child
– Allows to write notes.
– Helps to supervise reception of hormonal contraceptive tablets.
– Multiple users allowed. Data is protected by a password for every user.

NOTE: This program is not a reliable contraceptive method. It does
neither help to prevent sexual transmission diseases like AIDS. It is
just an electronic means of keeping track of some of your medical data
and extract some statistical conclusions from them. You cannot
consider this program as a substitute for your gynecologist in any
way.

To install in Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install cycle

Unison


Application: Unison

What it is:

Unison is a simple, lightweight backup program. It is GUI-driven,
which makes it well suitable for new Linux users. It is capable of
backing up files and folders to local and remote locations (via SSH)
and can run scheduled.

Features:

Unison offers several advantages over various synchronization methods
such as CVS, Coda, rsync, Intellisync, etc. Unison can run on and
synchronize between Windows and many UNIX platforms. Unison requires
no root privileges, system access or kernel changes to function.
Unison can synchronize changes to files and directories in both
directions, on the same machine, or across a network using ssh or a
direct socket connection.

Transfers are optimised using a version of the rsync protocol, making
it ideal for slower links. Unison has a clear and precise
specification, and is resilient to failure due to its careful
handling of the replicas and its private structures.
