    Games, but I mean grappling with any problem and (hopefully) solving it can be very rewarding.

    Well I can't stand doing graphics or designing stuff, so I typically design algorithms and stuff. I do a lot of web design, even though that is mostly graphics and designing stuff..., and I'm getting into a bit of AI now as well.

    I prefer writing software for embedded systems, making a device to do something is nice to do.

    Yes, this sounds cool, but comparing to other projects showed here, it's a bit complex no?

    If you understand what you are doing it is not very complex. It can be very complex, but that is also with other things. For example making an application to do digital image processing can also be quite complex, mainly because of the math required.

    I like doing a lot of server and client based things. I've been getting into IRC server coding and such, and am planning on writing a couple of basic clients as an learning experience.

    It's nice to see there is a variety here. Most places you go everyone is working on games. I myself love to make games. I just love to see it piece together and eventually make something you can show off to your friends and such, and be proud of. I just don't get that same satisfaction when doing other things. I'd like to get into server/client stuff; it looks fun.

    Personaly I hate Game and Graphics/GUI coding. What I really like to do is deamon and system coding. I cant count how many times I killed the Linux kernel from "improvements" I've tried to do
