I was thinking about building a query tool for your computer system. This tool would allow you to query things like files, directories and other system information. Also, this information would allow you to create scripts, that would otherwise require you to know sed and/or awk.

Another item I was thinking about creating was a system to manage a rolling window of partitions in an Oracle DB. I created this at my last job and it was great, but they would not let me release it. So, I am thinking about building a better mouse trap.

Would this benefit anyone or should I build something else?
