I'm a computer engineer, experienced with C, C++ (especially C++11), Python, Bash, z80 and PIC24 assembly, LaTeX, Java (mostly with Android), and a handful of others. I run Arch Linux and CyanogenMod, avoiding Windows whenever possible.

You can find some of my work on GitHub.

I don't think it can filter traffic by subnet, however.

See my comment in ultrasawblade's answer... I go into a little more detail there.

comment OpenVPN as a paranoid mesh network
Hey, thanks for the answer. My scenario is as follows. Basically I have a few computers behind a very strict inbound firewall that I can't control (but anything outbound is allowed). I would be using a free Amazon EC2 instance to act as the server. Bandwidth is limited, hence my desire for a peer-to-peer connection. Also, I don't entirely trust Amazon to see everything that happens on the VPN. I could have two layers, one for NAT busting and one for secure communication, but then Android, which only does one layer, can't join the party. If you have other insights, I'd appreciate them!

comment Where should I store source downloads for installation?
That's correct. All package managers keep a list of files installed by the package, so you can delete the built package after you install it.

comment Encrypting a Dual-Boot Hard Drive
To clarify, sda1 is a ~ 40 MiB fat16 partition. The BIOS probably uses it or something. sda2 is ~20 GiB (!) and is labelled RECOVERY. Also, do you know if it would be easier to install GRUB to the boot sector of sda6 (is it safe, can it be done, will Truecrypt chainload it, etc.)?
