What are your (current) hobby projects? What languages or libraries are you using? How usable or complete is it? What makes what you're doing novel or great?
No need to be smug or anything, or get all angry at other people for using <thing you hate>. Just share what you're up to. Add a URL if it's public too, if you want.
My latest success is a binding to an unpopular database in an unpopular language. Ah well.
I wrote a game and I discovered a totally fundamental bug in it that somehow I missed for months and probably will never be able to fix but its just for me so I guess I can keep the bug no worries..
I wrote an IRC "bot" in Powershell; it joins a pre-determined channel and waits until someone says "wallpaper [url]" where [url] is a URL with a wallpaper.
Work keeps me too busy to have much fun anymore. The most recent thing I wrote was a textboard software but now I have little to no motivation!

I'm learning Rust, it's pretty cool.
I'm making a roguelike in Scheme with ncurses. It is similar to GNU Robots where you actually program your character/robot instead of controlling it manually.
How is rust going. From what I've heard it is an updated C++.
It sort of is in that it can get as low-level as you want, and it feels like you're writing fast code like C++, but I've found myself comparing it to Haskell more often. The compiler is pretty strict about the type system and lifetimes. The error messages are very helpful though, so it's not often a problem.
I'm making a 2D RPG in Java. I will probably never finish it.
