I Need A Personal Project

Since I have begun a career as a "professional web developer", I've thought that maybe I should come up with a personal web project for myself. I usually prefer non-web work for my own stuff, but the challenge to do really good things in the limitations of a webpage is pretty cool. So, what should I do? I've thought of some ideas, but I'm not sure which would be the best...
  • A virtual pet website, with actual interactivity with your pets, who will be driven by similated biochemestry and artificial neural networks, much like Creatures.
  • A web-based Python IDE, designed to be used by other applications or stand-alone.
  • An artificial neural network development suite as a webapp.
  • A waste-my-time website full of different web-based games you can play with other users anonymously (ie, no registration. just go and have fun.)
I dunno, I just need to have something of my own to spend some time on now and again. Any thoughts on what sounds cool?

What about a web based IDE using the Wiki technology so that many users can edit the source code (some online RCS + IDE). But you need also to find somehow to run the code in the users machine in order to test it.

I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.

I am happily employed by the excellent Caktus Group, located in beautiful and friendly Carrboro, NC, where I work with Python, Django, and Javascript.
