    I read a brief, really brief, description of CGI and I got the impression that it just allows you to put programs up on the web to be run, on the web. Is this right?

    Its a serverside deployment of your program. The CGI proggie processes requests made by you and gives resonse.

    IE....

    You fill in a form to order a book at amazon.....

    It validates you (with whatever process it uses), takes your order, and queries it against its stock DB. Records your book order, personal details, IP, date...blahdy blahdy blah as an order to process, instructs shipping to send the book, validates your payment and spits back a nice "Order Accepted" page. (And a load of other crap like records the type of order and makes sure you are offered something similar the next time you are at the homepage and then puts you on the junk mail list).

    Whatever you want to use for your CGI program (be it C, Java, Pearl...etc) depends on you and your server.

    Go for ASM, cozman - I'm learning it now (although for a 68HC11 instead of x86)... It's kinda cool to know exactly what's gonna happen (instead of wondering what it's gonna compile to)

    I like Visual Basic, you can make database apps very quickly, even without writing a single line of code...

    Yes, VB is the shortcut way to do everything (well, most everything). Side effects are extreme. It's not worth it.

    > Go for ASM,

    ASM definitely interests me. I'm not at that point, though. I'm trying to master C. I LOVE C.
