I was reading the thread about first OS projects with interest. The thread mentioned a perl monks quest.
This seems to be a nice idea, hows about creating a questing section on perl monks where programming challenges can be set and met. I would certainly be interested in flexing my programming skills in solving a problem just for the fun of doing it. Note I am refering to puzzles more than how do I load this array with this data type questions.
Have a look at POTM
for some examples of what I talking about.
Sorry if this is off topic or inaproiate for PM, hay I am new here, please correct me if I am off the track.
