The rules seem really favorable to the OpenWRT project: all entries are required to have open source license and will be released. Contest already started, but I have seen almost no mention. There is still plenty of time left.

Could be built on top of existing X-WRT or LuCI OpenWRT web interfaces. OpenWRT Kamikaze 8.09 was just released. Now is perfect timing for OpenWRT to get some kick-ass interface and usability ideas. I'm not affiliated with the contest vendor."

It has been about 3 years since I built my current PC, and keeping it running all the time uses a lot of juice. With my next PC I would like to do what I can to keep the power-consumption to a minimum, without sacrificing processing power or other features. What should I look for when choosing components for my PC, and what other ways are there to keep the power consumption down?"

Here's a look at some of the more interesting new features in Leopard Server — including its open source iCal Server based on Twisted.web2 and a Wiki Server which saves history using Subversion — and how its components integrate together to offer far more than a sum of its parts."
