Administer a functional, useable computer more than 10 years old <- Done, I manage two Dec Alpha's.
Contribute to/start an open source project - Done.
Contribute and get a Linux kernel patch accepted - not done.
Ascend in nethack - still not done.
Have a real life sword fight with genuine antique swords - believe it or not - done (but it was play-fighting with a friend), thanks Bill and Ted for the idea.
Write a SIFI novel - in progress, may never be done.
And finally - I actually built my media center PC... out of spare parts, hitting a two-for-one

(1) construct a ridiculously robust micro-kernel based operating system in LISP (or maybe SPARKAda)
(1a) make sure it is rigorously copy-lefted, yet far ahead of any proprietary competition (so big-business would have to just follow, rather than quash it)
(1b) get it embedded in a majority of the medical, aeronautical, astronautical, nuclear equipment, etc - so we have far less stupid accidents and Stuxnet-type crises...
(1c) (re)write a hyper-flexible distributed version of the OS that can be self-healing
(1d) wait for the hardware to catch up so we can create benevolent versions of T-1000s
...am I being too ambitious? ...yes [sigh].
