How come when it comes to personal programming projects, I have a stack of idea's, but when it's for study, I can't think of a thing?!

Thoughts, opinions, flames?

(If you don't know what this means, look it up in a dictionary of old english. I learned it from R+J.)

about this... er... i find it difficult to actually code all my ideas... in fact! rest assured that the products of my efforts are quite off my original intention... and about now, it's been so long that i forgot what my original intention was... so i'm in a programming void right, and it really stinks...

>>i thumb my nose at you sir

Personally I find that fingers are much better for that purpose. They are much more manuverable and smaller in size, which leads to much less pain.

Back on topic, why not just do a clone of some popular program?
Its boring I know but atleast you have a working model to base yours on, that makes things a lot easier.

It's interesting that you say that shtarker, because I came to that conclusion last night! I'm going to modify a program by Bruce Eckel that deals with emergence, and (hopefully) improve upon it.
