Pretty soon we will need to choose what we are going to do our project
on. It seems that we have a couple of strong possibilities, and maybe
some other weaker ideas.

To the best of my knowledge, our strongest ideas so far are:

1. A program that will talk email archives and convert them into an html
format, so that the archives can be read publicly.
(Idea from David)

2. A text editor that can edit remote files, so that I don't need to run
emacs through a telnet window.
(Idea from me)

In addition, I proposed writing a simple game. I wanted to base it off
of a shareware game I used to play when I had a slower computer. It's
interface was poor enough so that it became impossible to play on a
computer faster than a 486. And since I miss playing it, I thought it
would be nice to write a new version.

I think I may have sent more ideas to David before we had our group
figured out, but I don't think any of them were worth considering.

Corey, Bob, and Quang. If you have any ideas for our project, please
send them out. Even if they don't sound promising, maybe your ideas will
result in us thinking of the perfect project. In addition, if you have
thoughts on the ideas listed above, please send them too.
