Happy Christmas!

Inspired by Pat Phelan's generosity I've decided to also get in the Christmas spirit and give away a Christmas gift.
I'm giving away two Buffalo Technology WHR-G54S wifi routers. Not only can you win one for yourself but I will also give one to a primary school of your choice. Schools are generally very badly served in the IT area and this would be a good way to help them a bit.
Now while this router is a great piece of kit in itself we've improved it by flashing the router with DD-WRT firmware.
This firmware gives the router a shot of steroids by greatly enhancing the capabilities:
* 13 languages
* 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP)
* Access Restrictions
* Ad Hoc
* Afterburner
* Client Isolation Mode
* Client Mode (supports multiple connected clients)
* DHCP Forwarder (udhcp)
* DHCP Server (udhcp or Dnsmasq)
* DNS Forwarder (Dnsmasq)
* Dynamic DNS (DynDNS, easyDNS, FreeDNS, No-IP, TZO, ZoneEdit, custom, and
* Hotspot Portal (Sputnik Agent ,Chillispot)
* IPv6
* MMC/SD Card Support (hardware modification required)
* ntop Remote Statistic (ntop)
* OpenVPN Client & Server (only in -vpn build of the firmware)
* Port Triggering
* Port Forwarding
* PPTP VPN Server & Client
* QoS Bandwidth Management
* QoS L7 Packet Classifier (l7-filter)
* RFlow
* Routing (BIRD)
* Samba FS Automount
* Syslog
* Rx Antenna
* Tx Antenna
* Show Status of Wireless Clients and WDS with System Uptime/Processor
* Site Survey
* SSH server & client (dropbear)
* Startup, Firewall, and Shutdown scripts (startup script)
* Static DHCP
* Style (Changeable GUI; v.23)
* Supports New Devices (WRT54G V3, V3.1, V4, V5 and WRT54GS V2.1, V3, V4)
* Telnet server & client
* Transmit Power Adjustment (0-251mW, default is 28mW, 100mW is safe)
* UPnP
* WOL (Wake On Lan) (WOL)
* WDS Connection Watchdog
* WDS Repeater Mode
* Wireless MAC Address Cloning
* Wireless MAC Filter
* WMM (Wi-Fi MultiMedia)
* WPA over WDS
* WPA2
* Xbox Kaid (Kai Engine)

Anyway, just post a comment on this post and I will randomly pick one comment next week.
