Sooo I just finished my last project for the year and I'm looking for a pet project that would keep me busy coding for the x'mas season. At least it'll keep my attention off the food and allow me to do something fruitful (no pun intended :D).
Mind sharing your current pet projects (or "sideline") as suggestions?
I'm a Java, Rails guys if it helps.

I have like 9 personal projects screaming for time and around 3 major projects at work and a bunch of little more. I would suggest to keep a list may it be on a paper, your cellphone, Google calendar or what have you to keep your ideas intact.
More often than not I write tons of ideas, some are great and some are not. Some ideas have already been created by other people, some ideas are still technolocially impossible and is still waiting for the needed technology to ripen.
I envy you that you have such time to do stuff like that. I wish I was this organized while I was in college so at least I could have made the most out of my time and my ideas.. If you keep your focus on ideas you think about, you might end up with a breakthrough project coded on your spare time..
Good luck on your Christmas break coding!

Originally I wanted to continue working on my Special Problem during college which was basically a call center scripting tool. Originally it was built AJAX-PHP, but after learning about adobe flex and salesforce, i had this idea of porting it to that "platform", haven't had the time though.
Also I'm trying to learn to code in Android, aiming to create something special...A CRM SFA system, basically somewhere along the lines of salesforce..something like that...can't really describe it in detail now...all abstractions, no details...haha
