Back in 2006 I developed some website plugins for OpenNTF. Since the 'action' is now not only in the Projects area but also in the Apache and GPL Catalogs I added new categories, we now have:

Most active projects, Most downloaded projects, Most recent releases , OpenNTF Blog Entries, Apache Catalog Entries, GPL Catalog Entries and even a 'Random category'

Note there is no content in the GPL catalog yet, but that shouldn't take too long.
Please let me know If there is a need to splitup the categories further to allow display of only one entry type like 'Component' or 'Plugin' in case of a catalog entry.

<script type="text/javascript">
category = "random" //(current 'fixed' categories: "recent","downloads","active", "blog", "gpl", "apache") ;
inwidth = 220;
inheight = 170;
innumber = 3;
<script type="text/javascript"

The parameters can be adjusted to suit your needs, the innumber can be used to limit the number of return values.
This helps to prevent the text being cutoff at the bottom of the iframe (since the lookups are dynamic there is no way to predict the exact amount of text returned).

Check out the result below:
