reconfigurable chess game

ie: say "board dimensions are now x by y, knights now move the following way, there's now 3 knights (placed at the following spots), and no more rooks"

and then play a game

back to the object-code thinger

once you read code into a compiler as an abstract syntax tree with a symbol table, it's in a really neat state. It's independent of language semantics or syntax. (or, it can be)

ideas for what to do with it in that state:

code style converter (for example, braces and indentation)

code generator (convert your C to python, your python to java, etc.)

diagram generator (spit out meaningful diagrams of the structure of the code)

more and more I'm thinking this is the utility I want. I wonder if this is pretty much what something like Doxygen is capable of.

zoomable document editor thing

music: all the instruments of today utilized in full force as a descriptive measure of the wonders of the earth

much as gershwin did a city, and prokofiev did peter and the wolf, we could have several things! A city album, a countryside album, a mountain album, a train album, an ocean album, a small town album, a farm album, a castle album - just, music inspired by these things.

Especially a city; gershwin had a good idea there.
