Lately I have been working on a program that sends information from the machine that ran the jar file, to my mobile phone. I was wondering, what great stuff have you guys (and girls) been working on?

One thing I'm very proud of is a game editor I made for the classic Infinity Engine games, like Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment. It allows users to easily edit the games, drop in stuff or even create entire scenarios.

Currently I'm working on a web browser that supports HTTP, HTML, CSS and JavaScript, so that I may gain a greater understanding in these technologies.

Nice, I would imagine that creating a web browser would be a good learning experience (especially if the is support for CSS, Javascript etc). I am into creating programs using APIs because I like the idea of handling real data within a program. My favorite API is Twilio, which is for sending texts and calls to phones!

Take a look at SunSPOT. It's pretty neat. They're small pieces of hardware that come with a special JVM that runs Java ME. They have sensors such as accelerometers, temperature sensors, light sensors, radio, switches and more. You can use them for cool hobby projects such as making robots, automating devices in your house, or plain fooling around. They're a bit pricey though.

one i am kind of fond of. when i was doing the project Euler thing, i created a simple GUI for it. it has a JComboBox that uses Class.forName() to find all the ones that exist(i have solved). when you click on one it shows a dialog stating the problem. when you click ok in the dialog it displays the answer in a JTextArea. using Class.forName(0 is what makes it cool. as i solve more problems they get automatically added to the JComboBox
