Hello, I am currently learning OBJC and need some small projects to work on so I learn the ropes of the trade. I have noticed a lot of "How to learn..." threads and thought we could have a thread dedicated to cool ideas about smaller projects to learn from. My first project I am starting now is a "auto pinger" sounds awesome but basically it is an frontend to access the ping command and top command. You enter an IP address or hostname and press ping and a green/red lamp shows if it is there or not. Then you can decide if you want to mail the output using mail. As far as I understand this includes at least NSTask and some other stuff and will probably be fun. I will post the code here once I am finished. Do you have any cool ideas for smaller apps that would take 1-5 days to produce then please drop them here. A plus is if you have to use a variety of libraries. If not, then this will be a solo thread where hopefully someone can get some inspiration at least.
