Still in the works


CE Toolbar. I think we had a discussion on this in relation with the CE Plugin.

CE Browser. Big K has mentioned this once.. which I think follows naturally if we manage to successfully complete the above projects.

I notice that theres lesser activity regarding CEan collaborated projects. This might be because the threads are sorta scattered around and new members might not notice them. I have a small suggestion in that we can list all CE projects that we planned (or briefly mentioned) to do in one thread and sticky it, so its visible all the time. Big K, im sure you have a solution planned, but I'll just contribute a bit here 😉

CE Messenger. Probably the more mature of all our projects in terms of the length of discussions. Check here and here to check it out and contribute.

CE IE/Firefox plugin. We managed to have good progress in this one!
Check it out here.

CE Robot. Just mentioned recently, hopefully we can start a thread on this soon.

There might be more, but I cant remember at the moment!
We were very small when we started discussing about CE Projects. Now that we are bigger in numbers, I think we can start with a 'small' project (let's say a plugin or something).

Yep, and we can also simulateously run another small project with it so many CEans can get involved 😀 I really think we should resurrect the CE Messenger again.

I'd say we should work on the project WWWP - Look here - https://www.crazyengineers.com/forum/ce-labs/566-project-wwwp.html

There are couple of reasons I think we should 'start' with this project -
  1. We'll need 1-2 CEans who'll build up a system that will dynamically update the width of our page. Not a big task for CEans. Can be easily implemented.
  2. Sense of participation - we all will participate in making it the world's widest web page.
  3. Sense of achievement : We'll be doing something that has not been done before 😁 and it will also help us gaining some popularity.
What do you say? Am I 'crazy' enough?
Ashraf HZ
Ashraf HZ • Mar 9, 2008
Interesting 😛 What kind of "content" would we put to make it wide? Im guessing if we had a "game" like the word games we have and link the answers together.. or something like that.
Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Mar 9, 2008
That's a good question. But I'm not sure how many of you like the idea of creating world's widest web page 😁

We can use anything to widen our web page. Any random ideas?

Ashraf HZ • Mar 9, 2008
Maybe members can submit their photos? Perhaps of their university, workplace, city, car, pets etc. Or even photoshopped stuff. In general, user generated stuff if possible. We can make a photo wall!

Will be too heavy to load, don't you think so?

How about simple text with each crazy engineer's name and discipline?

Ah crap, forgot about that 😛

Hm.. we are close to 9000 members. That might work.. lol
Biggie, can we sticky this thread? Pretty pleaaase 😀

As for CE Linux! 😀

We can use DSL (Damn Small Linux) as a base or the Knoppix as a base. it will be pretty exciting compiling our own list of OSS in the "CEnux" Linux distribution!

Hi CEans, shall we start a project on developing a mail or messenger for LAN connections. If there is already one of its kind, let me know.

Ah, we could adapt the CE:IM project for LAN connections!

What do you think? Head over to the thread here:

*sigh* finally updated the project list. Good to see some being very active!

Thanks for this master list to keep us all updated on where we are at with all these ideas!
I wish there were more projects to update 😔

Anyway, if any of you would like to suggest a project to collaborate with the rest of the CEans here, please feel free to do so. Just start a thread with something like "Project Proposal: Blah blah blah.."

Share your ideas, no matter how crazy they are!
*bump*

wow, 3 months since I last posted here! Updated the Project list with status and activity. Unfortunately most are stagnant now, but good news is, CE IM is back on track now that Xero is out of hiatus! 😉

Regarding CE: Mail, why do we need it? And i don't see the purpose. However there will be no issues in implementing it alongside CE: IM.
CE Mail? Its not a project.. its basically the email adds ending with @crazyengineers.com.
ASH we have a long list of projects, but no outcome. 😔

Could you please make a consolidate status report for all the projects, so that we can appeal to few budding engineers to help us out in completing the same. We seriously needs to pump this activity and need to complete at least a project before 26th Nov. So that we can announce atleast single success story of CE LABS.

Yes, I've been meaning to do a detailed report, but its quite time consuming. The first CE Bot summary took ages thanks to procrastination 😛

Would probably postpone it until the user guides for CE have been completed.

In my personal opinion, the easiest project to finish by that deadline would be some sort of software project. Perhaps complete the important objectives of the CE:IM, or perhaps the CE Browser.

@all CEans:

Can we start a few of the dead projects?

We can also bring in fresh new ideas. The projects should not be restricted to Computer & IT Engineers. 😀

Shoot your responses now.
Project WWWP - Worlds Widest Web Page! Status: Stagnant
Can anyone explain me about this project ?

We thought of creating world's widest web page. Nothing more to it.
Oh how I miss CE Bot 😔

I am thinking of revitalizing the CE Earth project, though still thinking of a good way to do it. Don't want to start on something to sophisticated.

PS: I will update the first post with all the new projects that have recently started soon.

Is the list that I see here updated ?

The list itself has been dead for a long time, just like the CE Lab projects. That will change soon. Ash, I think we need to take drastic actions. Scrap all the stalled projects or remove them from this list.

Start anew, with good motivations. There were amazing progress being made on CE Messenger but after @CEMember and @xero left, it went kaput. We need to have proper definition of projects and motivation to make them. Something new something amazing and different!

Software projects need to be different and useful, like @praveenscience has been trying. His contacts manager.

Hardware projects in simple terms needs funding or a large group of CEians who are willing to pool in and a common place to build the project. Or they could be small individual projects.

For the Hardware projects, I am ready. Let me know how can we start. 😀

Hi Sada.. just realized you renamed your user ID 😛 I still need some catching up to do here. Hopefully we'll have a resurgence of interest in CE projects again!

That's really good to know, waiting for it 😀

And yeah, changed my username. Thanks to Bigk for giving me that chance 😛
