Gosh i'm so proud hehe .. i'd be happy to help out! I do know what you mean, i'm forever starting projects and not finishing them once i've learned all i can.
Anyway i've been thinking about creating a web based diary/calender system which will have member login/signup, email alerts etc. but i'm already working on a gallery program at the moment so i havn't taken this any further than the idea stage
In theory this should teach you:
1. CGI or another suck systems like mod_python
2. Databases (*SQL although you could use others)
3. How to deal with times and dates in Python (pretty handy)
4. Form handeling, cookies, regex etc.
5. Security on the web.
6. Some web design skills like graphics , CSS, HTML etc.
7. Apache setup.
8. Hopefully more, it depends how far you want to take it
It seems like a good project and covers alot of different ground so if your intersted go for it and i'll give you all the help you need .. if not maybe we can think of something you'd find more intersting?

well as you can see i already know
php,mysql,css,html,alittle c, alittle cgi ( hate it )
apache is easy, im not a good web designer ,
im great at security , mod_python hmm never heard of it
perl i know some .... but, what i want to do ... is maybe create
something in python that will help me better my skills then i will
i can go back to c what im looking for is someone that will
help me learn and maybe create some project's in time i think it
would be a great idea, specially for someone who knows what
he/she is doing like your self anyways.. if ya have aim or msn
or etc.. i would be glad to chat.. heh i do need the python help
anyways hehe im still tring to convert a .py file to exe.. heh i
know i will get it in time.. just want to keep on learning

here are a few
1) write a script that will look for a file in a specified folder. if you specify C:/, it will look for the filename somewhere in that C drive. if you want to be fancy, you can make the script pull up all files with a certain extension, etc.
2) if you want to mess with GUI's, it'd be pretty fun to write something like a Minesweeper game. I did this in java before, it's pretty fun (I bet it'd be more fun in python). if you want to be fancy, give it a timer and allow keeping like best scored or something.
3) write a calculator script that will take an expression like this:
1+3-4*8+2/5+4-(8-1) and evaluate it correctly with the proper operation priorities (ie mult and div before add and minus). if you want to get fancy, allow variable assigment (ie. a=8)
4) write a script that will take a word and pull up the definition(s) from dictionary.com. you'll need to look through the html of the pages returned to be able to programmatically locate the html section that you want.
these are pretty fun

Re: here are a few
Quick and dirty 2 liner that allows expression evaluation
exp = input("Enter an expression: ")
print "Result = ", exp

dang, that's... awesome, but kinda not.
nevermind that one then
oh, how about a script that translates a string into piglatin?

You might find this thread interesting.. it's just a collection of code snippets including a few calculator scripts (one by me).. plus a post by strike which explains how to delete everything on your computer though eval() , yes i was shocked too!
