I confess to not having done this in a while, but mine's a web server.

Web servers are pretty easy to start with - go for HTTP/0.9 (ie, bare GET requests) and static files, and go from there. Adding TLS, async networking and/or threading, CGI (I told you I've not done this in a while) all added lots of systems-programming tasks.

But that only works for me as a systems programmer. I should really learn something similarly complex to do in UI-side programming - suggestions really welcome.

That's more complex than my stuff, but I like the idea because it's something simple you can build more and more bits on over time.
