    PM or google for source code if you are desprite enought. I used to have many goals in life intil well... here I am. Its really a sad story and I don't want to share more on that than I already have.

    Check out the "programming" section of Negative's index of the tutorials forum here: http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=251708

    It contains TONS of info about programming and I can't think of a better place to start. It's a pain in the butt to learn at first....I'm the type that tries to absorb everything at once and just ended up with a headache and I was extremely hungry and sleepy by the time I took a break.

    Heh, I actually thought about copying and pasting your (Memory's) freakin LIBRARY of linkz. I've got a word document where I copied and pasted them awhile ago. Somehow I figured you'd do it yourself b/c you're online all the time and you just can't seem to pass up a perfectly good opportunity to post .

    start off with some basic languages like C, C++ ,basic. this will help you in getting your logics straight. i would suggest go for some degree/diploma in computers.

    and i found this pretty informative for new progg. wannabes

    Do you have any goals as to what you want to do as a programmer? To learn for the sake of learning I'd suggest you pick up a book on BASIC, play with that in order to understand programming basics, following that go to a book store and find a series of books that have beginner to advanced levels in a topic (i would suggest learning c ), start at a level your comfortable with and once you've mastered it many other languages will be easy.
    A mind full of questions has no room for answers

    Have you checked out python. You can download the software for free:
    http://python.org/

    Easy to learn the basics, might give you a good base to learn other languages.
