I'm an Advanced Visual Basic Programmer, i'm looking to do something which HAS been done before and if need be look on youtube to see how others have created theirs i need a project to keep me going for the next couple of hours? any ideas what i should do?
Web-Browser (Styled using Chromium Code) Calculators
Keylogger "Advanced" (Includes Adding registry entries and email logs)
Database Creator (Allows the user to create a FTP database using the program)
Any other ideas would be Appreciated and Thumbs up!
If you're really "advanced", you should be working as a Developer and pulling in $70-120K; any such job would give you plenty to do. Having said that...

if you where an advanced anything programmer i dont think you would be using visual basic... however some projects you may like to try...
a basic circuit simulator like p-spice, this project will test your ability to understand concepts by research and implementing them.
a program to import data from a text file and render various graphs from it and save them to the computer, this will test your ability to work with file operations and generate graphics
a program i wrote for a friend for a project is to import an image of an agar plate with bacteria growth and find the percent of that dish that is covered in bacteria.
a IRC chat client - this will test your ability to research other mainstream projects that have been done and are implemented and to create a product that works with an existing one.
calling yourself an "advanced X programmer" means you should be able to do all of these things over time. you should be able to learn new material not necessarily relating to programming, come up with an algorithm to implement it, then code it. i dont even call myself an advanced programmer yet. and i have several college courses under my belt that for programming.
No one is going to hire you for the projects you have done already, because they have been done a thousand and one times before. A sign of a good programmer is doing something that has not been done before.
but if you really want to stretch your ability... learn a new language, im not going to lie, almost anyone can program in visual basic if they wanted to learn it. that was my first language, however i have also learned C, C++ and assembly...

hmm chrome and microsoft dont get along first off since visual studio has IE all over it and wouldnt be the platform for developing chrome apps in the first place, but being a advanced programmer you would know that all ready.
FTP and database again I wonder where you are coming from , FTP is a file transfer protocol that is unsecure and very outdated but still used. Having files names in a database only makes it a database not a FTP or file drop site. You could create a database that contains all the file URI's so clicking on BOB would tell the visitor browser to download the file, this is how many sites do that exact thing, the files are not in the database but the database has pointers the the actual file locations.
why not develop a applications that speeds up the internet and detects all the bad uri out there and removes them on the fly so you never get maleware, virus or spyware..
