Anyone have some? Maybe some sort of mini-program you think would be fun to make?

I'm looking for something that java programmers of medium skill can complete within 4 hours, working in pairs.

If anyone can remember a site with a list, or a list of ideas, I'd appreciate it.

They have a competition about once a week and you can try out all the past competitions. I'm hoping to get back into it again myself. It's set up pretty well - they have system tests you can run to test your code so it makes for a great learning experience.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
