Last month's contest: Mad lib
Last month's contest was a return to junior high slumber parties with a goofy mad lib. James Cheezem delivered the goods we were looking for, and his version of our mad lib release notes looks like this:
[Yowza!] Fedora Core 5 is out, and it's [Linuxier] than ever before. Not since [Red Hat 5] has so much [laziness] been packed into  CDs.
Some of the [excellent] features to look forward to in FC5:
- The new [Nautilus] manager, which takes all of your [Nautilus] configuration files and [processes] them for easier [yodeling];
- New patches in the 2.6.[6.02 * 10^23] kernel. This protective new kernel works with more hardware than ever before; especially notable is the native [evaporative humidifier] integration. [Golly!]
- New accessibility features, including the [ESR] text-to-speech synthesizer.
- So welcome to Fedora Core 5. Make your friends [rant] with [apathy]!
December contest: Music to make code by
This month, we had a feature article all about the tunes our developers, engineers, and writers use to power through late-night code or creative sessions. They came back with everything from John Coltrane to Johnny Hollow.
But we want more. We want the ultimate mix. So send us your list of 10 tracks, with a paragraph or two explaining why they work together to make the hours fly by. Is it the bass line? The beat? Is there some esoteric relationship between each tune and the next? Give us something new to put in our ears, and remind us why old favorites stick around.
We'll take a vote and see which one of you could totally be our DJ.
The winner will get his or her list published in next month's issue and receive a Cool Stuff Store gift certificate (approximate retail value $20.00).
