We've started a new section on the Compendium, titled "Wisdom from 
<http://wiki.contesting.com/index.php/Wisdom_from_CQ-Contest>, which is 
an attempt to collect the best posts from CQ-Contest over the years.  
We're particularly looking for timeless advice and philosophical 
comment, rather than posts dealing with the passing controversies of the 
moment.  Take a look and add your own choices, but please be sure it's 
OK with the author.  You can also tell me where to find your favorites 
and we'll take it from there.

Speaking of which, with permission from Bob Cox, K3EST, we will be 
archiving CQWW Contest Committee updates 
Here's hoping they keep coming, because most of us would agree that the 
increased openness at CQWW is terrific.

And finally, if you enjoy creative analysis of our hobby, take a look at 
"Two-radio event signatures" 
<http://wiki.contesting.com/index.php/Two-radio_event_signatures> by 
CT1BOH and VE5ZX.  Through analysis of publicly-available CQWW logs they 
show how patterns can be derived that amount to "signatures" of SO2R, 
SO2R Assisted and Multi-Single operation.  Very persuasive!
