OSNews, Generic OSes Hobbies. Where would the computer industry be without them? Arguably, there wouldn't be a computer industry had it not been for hobbyists in the first place. The ineffable need to scratch an itch does still percolate even in this closed down world of big mainstream technology from big companies opposed to the little guy innovating. OSNews asks, what are you working on? We want to hear from you about your hobby projects (technology related or otherwise) to get a sense of what the community is cooking up for love of it, rather than because you're paid to do so. Share and enjoy!

What am I not doing?

Let's see. Easiest thing is to check out my project management site: http://projects.g33xnexus.com/

Though it's been touched the least, the most interesting thing I'm working on is a Python/Qt based web browser. ( http://projects.g33xnexus.com/coconut/wiki/Overview/ ) It has a rather beautiful settings system, is designed around the idea of using the address bar as a command line, has a wicked keybinding system, and I end up using is almost as often as Chrome. It needs more work... but with two-ish developers, I'm happy with how far it's come.

Also, I'm working on the project management that site is hosted on. Also python (django) based, I'm trying to create a viable alternative to redmine (which, while useful, is a huge resource hog. EPIC runs in a quarter the memory, and doesn't leak, like redmine.) ( http://projects.g33xnexus.com/epic/wiki/Overview/ )

Other than that? I'm making a (gasp) python based FPS Sneaker/Shooter (Panda3D) called Damnation. ( http://projects.g33xnexus.com/rfi-damnation/wiki/ )

The rest are just little things, like a PyQt based digital roleplaying charactersheet binder, and some odds and ends. (Also doing a site for a webcomic, but that's paid work... still a hobby though.)

Hey, any python developers looking for projects? I've got plenty, could use some help. ;)
