    Help me pick a project

    I want something fun to work on to expand my C# skills. I was thinking a general chat system. Where a client can login to the server and have a chat with any other clients logged in (not just one to one). I've looked at some networking code and it doesn't look too hard for something very simple. Any other ideas?

    You could write a freeware editor/IDE for C#.

    Yeah, there's a few of them about. The last version I downloaded of Sharp Develop (0.85) was a little buggy to say the least and I haven't kept up with the project.

    It was just a suggestion but a specific C# editor is a little more original than a chat prog (and more work).

    How feasible would it be to write a lightweight editor with syntax highlighting etc. that also autocorrected / highlighted syntax errors (missing ; & { etc.) on the fly?

    Could make it expandable for Java, C, C++, C# etc etc.

    That's over my head I think. I've begun working on a small chat system where users connect to a central server and chat. Beta 1 is already up and working. I'll work towards having each user able to connect to each other and talk privately later.

    I think that'd be too much work for one person (unless they had a lot of spare time). A simple but functional editor should be possible though.

    Surely the basics wouln't be that hard - you could expand the "rules" checking as time progressed. Perhaps I'll give it a go..... after I get that damn "Hello World" debugged.

    Here goes again...

    PHP Code:
    void main(void).........
