Self-Discovery leading to more content, downloads, and examples

Consider this a confessional post.
I love challenges when it comes to code. Tell me it can't be done, and I take that as a personal attack and will do everything that I can do prove you - naysayer of all things great and truthy - are wrong.
My biggest problem is... once I've proven that it can be done to myself, I get bored really quick... and I tend to walk away.
The thing is... I don't even have to write it to get my apathy up about something - once I figure it out in my head I'm often already moving on... which is not good.
This results in the quiet death of a lot of some really cool things, and I'm going to try - really put in an effort - to correct this particular character flaw that I see in myself.
To start, I've published 2 downloadable examples recently: SOTU - Remote Console Reporting v0.1 and Sorting Hat v0.1 - both of these simple applications (that admittedly aren't ground-breaking or amazing per se but have their charms) are both available for download... and I will try my best to keep up with them.
This was the first step - the second... well, I don't want to say anything that might wind up not getting done, so I'll just keep a tight lip until I have something a little more concrete to show you.
