. How about a "golden doughnut award" - since they're open. I tried to
. think of other "open" things, but "golden puff-pastry award" just didn't
. have a good ring to it.
. Does it have to be "golden"?
. "open apple award" sounds too much like the reset sequence on the early
. Apple computers (yes, it's sad that I still remember this).
. Any more esoteric computer terms? All I can think of off the top of my
. head are networking (packet, port, ACK, SYN) which may not be appropriate.
. More to the human side: Fingers, Brain, Caffeine, perhaps?
