The Josephus problem in the other thread is perfect.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

He told you to try this

"Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay."

Yep, you will have much fun with it.

Try programming a sudoku solver

### Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

Chess is too much of a challange.

other suggestions -> Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange, A Facebook App

Also, try making a game if you have a nice idea

No, I meant an app that is meant for entertaining facebook users. See this, http://apps.facebook.com/asciidp

Ofcourse it is... It is however impossible to maintain such a large database unless you have loads of money

### Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

Well, the creator of Facebook did it, so why not you? It isn't that hard - I built one a few years back (web based with only PHP/MySQL and Javascript) and it wasn't too difficult. Of course, it was small-scale so I did not need a large database or fancy web hosting, so it did not cost me much.

### Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

Depends on what type of social networking site you wish to create. Is it an app, a downloadable program or a website? If it's an app, then you will need to know Java and XML, along with a database such as MySQL. For a website, PHP/ASP, a database such as MySQL, HTML/CSS and Javascript. For a downloadable program, any mainstream language (C++ or Java is very common).

### Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

I do not think that will be a fun idea. What is thr point of recreating facebook?

By the way, there are a few open-source software having those functionalities, one can learn by dissecting thrm.

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'
