    Hello I am a moderate user in Linux,

    I am in a UNIX/LINUX Class and we are now starting our projects for the rest of the semester. My teacher will assign projects to us. But I was wondering if there was something better out there. So far he hasn't given the projects out yet but I want a head start on him.

    So if any of you know of something challenging that a moderate linux user could do, please tell me.

    Also some know it all in my class thinks he can make his own Linux distribution. Is it hard? Since he is also a moderate Linux user do you think he is just making up a bunch of bs?

    Thanks

    I have an Idea. How much involved is a proxy server? Because at school we have the entire school going through one proxy server with BESS installed. So I figured I could make the classroom their own server. We have to have some kind of blocker for porn installed on it. BESS blocks almost everything so I wanted to have my own proxy server so I can get to sites. What kind of computer and linux version is recommended? What kind of software would be needed?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Going from proxy to proxy server could cause network problems. Something fun and woud be very useful is setting up an openafs cluster
