Every now and again I get utterly bored and I am sitting at my computer. (Doesn't everyone?) One idea I have is to write a useful PHP script that I can release under the GPL for anyone to use. What do you think I should write? I want to make something useful but slightly different or unique. :)

Edit: I only want to write something that will be able to be utilized by lots of people, i.e. they download and use it on their own website.

What about a nice little Poll system.. Either for FPH or just in general.. Could edit the questions easily, and let people vote and see results.. Would be interesting. Something i might consider to put on the site later on...

Yeah, good idea! There is actually a mod for PunBB but I think that could get annoying with a flurry of random pointless posts, like, "Do you like my poll?" What version of PHP does the server run, by the way? Is my favourite SQLite available? :lol: Otherwise, I'd play around with a small MySQL table. :)

Aw, okay then. :p

The way I code something is by looking at all of the other scripts available, deciding they're all quite **** and then thinking "blimey it's easy to make something so much better". :lol:
