For me, just finals week and gearing up to get married on the 20th! So...
just a little on the busy side!

Here's mine, via attachment. I have it setup two ways: unique factors and
pairs of factors. I thought about trying to implement a binary tree so it
could show the actual factors using a tree type method... but I don't know
enough about python yet to do that. Might be a useful exercise though.

I haven't played with Django at all, but something I always love to do when
I'm learning a new language is write a guessing game. The computer "thinks"
of a number 1-10 and the user tries to guess it. It's pretty fun - at least
I think so :)

I don't know how consuming it would be, presumably it would take quite a bit
of programming, but I would love to create a paint chat program.

I'm sure some other general pyAR^2 themed stuff would be pretty cool.
