"On February 19, began project OGR-28, the challenge to discover the Optimal Golomb Ruler with 28 marks. The previous challenge, OGR-27, is almost complete, with only 9 stubs remaining to be processed, as of February 19. People participating in that challenge do not need to update their client, as it can also process stubs for the new challenge."

    Editors: Can we adopt the near universal editorial practice of including some kind of definition when writing about something obscure?

    The link to sort of fulfils this need, but a few words in the summary saying what the hell a "Golomb Ruler" is would be a lot more user friendly.

    Same goes for most acronyms and abbreviations. Unless it's something very obvious (MS-DOS for instance) it's good practice to spell it out the first time, then use the acronym.
