Outside the (Tool) Box

Some time ago, I started a project I called "Irrational Use of Rational Tools." The idea is to find alternative uses for each of the Rational Tools, using them to do things that they were not marketed to do. The goal for each exercise would be deeper knowledge of each tool with regard to its configurability.

I only got as far as making a Tic Tac Toe game for ClearQuest.

Now, there's no reason that this sort of project should be limited to Rational tools. Most development tools should be configurable to do unusual things. Here's an interesting example: Using ant as a video game engine.

The problem, I guess, is coming up with a new name.
