    Make a program to accurately calculate 3 to any arbitrary precision.

    Or write a program to figure out the question to 42.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    make a program that changes bits in random memory locations until your computer stops ticking


    or create two programs that try to hunt eachother out and kill eachother by copying themselves into a memory location that the other is occupying... see which one wins, if either...

    Create a database. This is the sort of project that can be easy or hard depending on how high your standards are, and how much time you have to code. You can do something simple which just stores static sized data types into a flat file, or you can go as far as creating a database which can support the Structured Query Language.

    Databases get more interesting once you start considering the ramifications of the database being larger than the available RAM, or once you start tailoring search algorithms to get you the best bang for your buck

    I did a search for posts by B0bDole with the word "code" in the post. I got back just a handful and not one of them had any of his own code in it. Makes you think....

    I like this better (although the regex is probably buggy)
    Code:
    $os = chomp(<>);
    die "blehblah" unless ($os =~ /(.*n[ui]x)|(mac)/i);

    Two reasons
    a) I don't ask for help with programs on this board (or any board for that matter), weird I guess.
    b) I haven't helped anyone on this board, I believe I did under my old name, cgawd.
    c) I don't know why you hate me but, for every second you hate me I love you for 3. :-p

    edit: wait that's three reasons whoops
    Hmm
