Nice flame there bdann. Looks like you spent more time on yours that I did. I found a lot of designs that got fancier and fancier. Having two young kids at home pretty much eliminates free time for me so I was looking for the simplest, fastest design that would get the job done. If I had more time, though, I would look into the more aesthetic DIY stoves.
You guys can also get and eat MRE's Cold or with heat tablet, not great but beats the crap out of 1960 era military food.
yea, i actually have approximately 48 hours left with free time.
Unorthodox, but here is a video of the "toilet paper heater"...http://youtube.com/watch?v=0WGNYqGWK4w
Here are the two I built that actually work well.They are essentially the same, but one is taller than the other. The windscreens are just cut down coffee cans with vent holes drilled, they double as a pot support. Here's the larger one in acton:I'm going to try these out later this summer on the trail.

Of course, it's pretty much just good for boiling water. Denatured alcohol is the fuel of choice and very easy to find.http://jwbasecamp.com/Articles/SuperCat/index.html I spent some time drilling 30 holes in a 3oz tuna can and it boiled water in 10 minutes using denatured alcohol.Then I decided to try an empty 14 oz black bean can I found in the recycle bin. I didn't drill in this one, I just punched a random number of holes in it with a church-key bottle opener. It took 75% less time to finish and it boiled water in 4 minutes flat. I think this will be my stove the next time I fly to camp since I can't take a stove or fuel on the plane. I can just take a can and stop by the hardware store for alcohol on the way to camp.
