I've been bored lately, and am looking for a project to work on (from scratch, I have yet to master working on a team). What ideas do people have?

Guidelines:

-Not necessarily Zaurus- or N810-specific
-Nothing 3D
-Nothing TOO massive (like a desktop environment or web browser, strangely enough I don't feel as though a game would be "massive")
-No "contribute to existing projects" requests, please (unless you feel excruciatingly, and I do mean excruciatingly, strongly that that's the way to go)
-Preferably only requiring one or two external toolkits/libs

Notes:

-It will be a C/C++ app
-The only external lib I really have experience with is SDL, a little FLTK. I'm willing to learn to use common libs like ogg/vorbis
-There are no guarantees that this program will ever be {started|completed|stable} or will {follow your idea exactly|follow anybody's idea at all}.

Thanks.

Mentor:

http://www.wulisoft.com/mtrwhat.htm

It was (is) an excellent task management app for the psion - some people have kept their psions running purely to keep this app going.

I think the developer basically gave up on it several years ago - it was never quite finished in terms of synching etc, but certainly worked well enough to be very usable. I've never found anything as good since switching to a Zaurus (which has many other advantages).

I used to use Mentor on my Psion some time back, but now I'm using Org Mode for my timekeeping. It runs on top of Emacs - which means you have to learn the basics of Emacs first - but I've found it invaluable.

You keep all your notes in a text file in a big outline tree, and you can easily insert TODOs with a schedule date, and a deadline date if necessary. There's an interactive agenda view which shows all the TODOs, appointments, etc. for a time period, such as the upcoming week. In the agenda view old, incomplete TODOs are shown in red, and you can re-schedule them with a few key presses. It only takes a few key clicks to mark a TODO as done.

Well worth a try.
