WatchOCR is free OCR server for PDFs. Based on Knoppix, WatchOCR uses cuneiform, and exactimage to create text searchable PDFs from image only PDFs. Using the web interface, WatchOCR can be remotely configured to monitor a watched folder for newly scanned PDFs for OCR conversion. Leveraging the power of a liveCD distro, WatchOCR is the fastest way to get an OCR service up and running for your network.”

This seems a very useful way to get high–quality optical character recognition across all services in a network.

autojump: Linux cd command on steroids

autojump is “a cd command that learns,” one that programatically learns your favorite directories and allows you to minimize keyboard input to get you where you want.

autojump is a faster way to navigate your filesystem. It works by maintaining a database of the directories you use the most from the command line. The jumpstat command shows you the current contents of the database. You need to work a little bit before the database becomes usable. Autojump will listen and rank your ‘cd’ commands by frequency.

This seems like a good utility for commandline purists!
