It's getting hot in here. Plat'Home
Plat'home, the maker of some very tiny Linux boxes is conducting an online contest to solicit ideas for the most interesting and challenging conditions to successfully run Plat'Home's OpenMicroServers. The best idea winner will be asked to test the server in their suggested condition and report the results back to Plat'Home.

If it works like you wanted, you get to keep the OpenMicroServers. If not, then the servers will probably be dead anyway. Fun and destruction go hand-in-hand!

Official rules are on the Plat'home blog.
