    Linux audio. If you're a musician, start recording yourself. There's a world you haven't explored. Install a minimal then xfce4, QJackctl, Rosegarden, QSynth, Fluidsynth, Hydrogen, Audacity, and there are many others to fiddle with. That will keep you going for sometime. I know it will me.

    Grab a cheap old audio interface (I have an eight channel PCI card type one on the desktop with eight analogue inputes, midi in, out and through, and a Digidesign MBox 2 Mini on the laptop which can be procured for $100 or less nowadays and works 'out of the box' in the newer Ubuntus).

    No, this is not a simple algebra problem, that is merely the name of the problem. it deals with Polynomial time.

    Go to the woods. Find a bear. Whack him with a stick. Say "Tag! You're it!"

    - Do things with the children! Let them fill your time more than now

    - If you still have time for linux, make a nice GUI for some good text tool, to make it available for those who are afraid of the command line interface!

    I can give you 'my example': mkusb. After that you can make a corresponding tool that looks and works the same way in Windows. That will make it easier for people to migrate from Windows to our Ubuntu flavours and Ubuntu based re-spins and distros.

    Take some college courses. Or teach some college courses on all the stuff you have learned!

    Help develop new editions of Ubuntu. And I'd be personally very grateful if someone could figure out why we need multiple accounts on multiple sites that all claim to use OpenID to report our findings when we test stuff! Write a tutorial on how to navigate the Ubuntu / Canonical maze! I bet there would be a lot more people testing "Ubuntu + 1" if it wasn't such a frustrating labyrinth of hoops to jump through:

    run development versions of some apps. The earlier bugs can be found, the easier they are to fix.

    then make a game that is on a large enough scale

    or try something like Europa universalis, eventhough once you get the hang of it it's not that difficult.

    i am curious how you manage all that with 2/3 kids. i have two and i am lucky if i have 1 hour free in a day. they are constantly on the move pulling my leg, hand...
