I always feel referral is king, and if i can learn one little thing every day, then i feel i am achieving.

I was going to have a go at python, but only based on google searches for the easiest programming languages to learn. Having said that non of you guys mentioned it and i don't want to start in the wrong direction.

I will have a look at the VB.NET tutorial and see if i can get my head around it.

I will let you know, thanks again.

Hi Darren,

I don't know much about Python, I have a friend who knows it but apart from that, I can't really comment on what it's like as a language. I would recommend sticking to something that is part of .NET, of which VB is the easiest

I'm sure you'll pick up VB.NET in no time.

Lol, well hopefully you'll never need to take me up on it, but if you do then I'll do my best to help

I think I would get fed up with VB before I get fed up with Darren

That's the one they are teaching for my Information Systems major here at Cleveland State University. A free tool to help you get started:

Visual C# 2010 Express | Microsoft Visual Studio

By the way, I'll be 53 in May and just went back to school in 2010. I wish I had done it when I was 45. I'm not too old, so you sure as heck aren't!
