ok so our page now contains
4 project ideas and 3 mentors
big thanks to the people volunteering and adding them

Can we get a few more ?
Ideal would be numbers similar to previous years
We wont have a student for each idea we list most likely.
If we list just 4 we might have just 1 or 2 students, having a
wider range of ideas to select from would increase the number of
contributions and number of potential new developers joining.

Many things microsoft did are stupid, but not doing something just because
microsoft did it is even more stupid. If everything ms did were stupid they
would be bankrupt already.
