Sorry... guess it had been a while since I'd gotten this off my chest.

I keep telling myself that I'm going to learn. I got to an average standard with VB and C#, but I stopped during revision for my A-levels and when I came to pick up where I left off, I had forgotten so much of it, it didn't seem worthwhile. I want to get to a very good standard of C#, then possibly look into starting C++. C++ syntax looks horrific compared to C# though!
