Re: Computing project
my advice, andhow I looked at it for my final year project is write something useful.
for my A level IT project I wrote a stock control and lookup program for a CD shop. it was all verynice and you get to go do the interviews with the shop so that you get real life user input etc.
but ultimatly it was a project that I didn't care about and thus... well the end result didn't really matter.
for my final year uni project I wrote a suite of tools for development, they included.
an online source repository.
an online knowledgebase
and a final combination of the two that served as a source repository with knowledge articles attached to serve as a bug tracking tool for the code.
it was something I'd decided that I wanted to make for myself for future use, and I have actually used it since.
because I actually cared about the outcome, and knew what I wanted the system to look like and how it should opperate I did a much better job of it than when I made systems that I just didn't care about.
I'm not saying that you should make a tool. just make something that you care about in a greater sense than I just have to do this to pass.

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
