Try and make a IRC Client or IRC Bot.
IRC is a very old technology (existing before I was born). Help bring it back to life and try making something. Best of all, any language that supports sockets can be used!
- A Bot that does Math.
- A Simple IRC Client.
- A bot-hosted game.
There are several resources that may help you.

HOW TO GET STARTED:
Getting started is simple. Follow these steps to get you bot up and running (if your writing your own lib).
- Connect to the server over TCP. Send the following commands:
- USER Name Name ServerAddr :RealName
- NICK BotNick
To make it join, send "JOIN #chan".
To make it leave, send "PART #chan".
If your not interested in creating a lib, you may use one that you find on the internet.
