As long as you don't have a non-competition clause in your current employment contract, I say go for it.

Unless you are in California, where non-compete clauses don't mean anything, because they are not legally binding.

Would the plugin need to do everything, or would I need a plugin that runs my "flash" program and returns an image?
How does this work?

I don't know, since I've never written a browser plugin. This is why I pointed you to tutorials that can help you figure that out. My best guess is that the browser provides you some sort of rendering context into which you can render.

I would like to make my own version of HTML.

I know this wont get popular nor is it a way to make money but I would like to do it for experience.
I would really like to learn more about Network programming, languages and interpreters.

Basically I want to be able to have a page like the following on a server and it display correctly in a Browser.

//Set the variables
// in this case a string called name to Waldo
str Name = "Waldo"
//Display Test "Where's Waldo"
"Where's" & Name
//Draw an image

Just going to point out that what you are trying to do has nothing to do with Network Programming. And everything to do with languages and interpreters. HTML is just a markup language that allows you to configure how you display data. Its no different than having a doc file or pdf file (except for the javascript part). You may be asking for help in the wrong forum.

If you want to build an actual Firefox plugin Google can help you with that. Here is a tutorial i found via simple google search.
(a firefox extension might be easier, instead of converting your language to pixels you'll be converting it to HTML)

I hope you realize that building the plugin (or extension) is the trivial part. The hard part is actually building the interpreter (depending on which libraries you use).

Overall this exercise will not make you a better network programmer. All you are going to learn is how to create a language and interpret it. If that is what you want to learn, then thats fine.

One good way to prevent vote cheating, is to have users post the votes, and only count the votes of the users who have been members for more than 6 months and have a certain amount of posts. Or something along those lines. Just a suggestion.

You might want to try Chatter. I haven't tried it, but it looks interesting.
