You can download the documentation to the PC.
If you use Windows the documents (including the tutor) are part 
of the standard windows install package.

And of course my more basic tutorial is available in multiple 
formats for download including Palm doc and PDF... :-)

Try an address book or a cd/video database.
You might want to look at file handling too so that you 
can save the database between sessions!

Also the "Useless Python" web site has a whole bunch of small 
(and not so small) projects to try.
