    I'm a C# and Java developer looking to introduce myself to OS X development using Cocoa and Objective-C. What I'm looking for are ideas for a relatively small application I can work on in my spare time. Anyone have any ideas?? :D

    A GUI for tripwire.
    Of course it's GPL'd so, no financial gain available.

    LOL. Is that a variation on the "Shakespearean Insult Generator"?

    I'm serious though.. a Tripwire GUI would be KICK Ass.. particularly for those security conscience folks out there (of which there will be more and more as more and more Switchers happen and more and more (some?) real-world exploits happen.

    Yeah, that's a pretty good idea. Maybe a little larger than what I want for a first project in OS X but definitely a good idea.
