    In need of something to make

    Anyone have any ideas for any simple but usefull programs or simple but fun games I could make. It seems like when ever I start on anything no matter how simple it seems, it ends up being a lot more work then I anticipated or I simply approach it wrong and end up giving up. I would also prefer that it isn't something which has been done a million times before. Lastly It would help if you could recomend me a few good tutorials which would be helpful for the project.

    Think about something you'll want to make, right down ideas/thoughts, or play a few simple things and think if you'll want to make a whole new version of it.

    How about a program to find (and prove) a BILLION DIGIT prime number!

    I am half joking. There is a $250,000 reward for anyone who can do it. There is also a $125,000 reward for a 10 MILLION DIGIT prime, a trivial task by comparison.

    See

    for more info.
