Unhappy linux mini project

Hello guys and gals
I am a student , studying computer science engineering in India. We have a project to do in the next 3 months. I have decided to make a project in which linux is an integral part. To give you an idea , as to what kind of projects are normally done, I have given some examples.

1.Recognising Hand Written statements.
2.Sending files from one pc to another using a protocol.

Normally the source code for a program is about 5000 lines or higher.
I ask , can some of you suggest any idea or a topic , on which I can make a project based on linux. Also, any other ideas will be most welcome. Thank you.

How about a network sniffer that can detect traffic being generated from Trojans such as SubSeven?

What would be incredible would be a program that could read prescriptions from doctors (over here in the states, they have the worst handwriting!)

I imagine anything dealing with network security, integrity and performance would be great. Also, maybe somekind of accounting system that could keep tract of different stores and there transactions and produce stats from them

What level expertise are you guys? also, maybe you could give us more ideas on what the professor is grading you on.

Well, a very interesting topic that can combine both of your example is a network authentication system based on fingerprints.
Ok, I admit general purpose scanners are not properly the best idea, but they can work.
You can find many pattern recognition algorithms for fingerprints on the net.
Let us know your decision!
Good luck

Question ambiquity

I thank Tomasfuego and TheIrish for coming up with some great ideas.
Tomasfuego has asked me about my expertise.

Well, I have studied OOPs,C language and assembly level language in detail. Also I have worked on linux for the last 1 year. I am not perfect in Linux, but I do have a general working knowledge of linux. Also I have studied the protocols involved in networking ,design of alogrithms and logic design.

I hope I receive many more ideas . thank you
