    Thanks a lot, after I am done learning C and C++(I know that is a hell of a long ways away) do you have any books that can help you start game programming??

    Too bad I didn't think of asking that. I had to resort to sketchy retchy online tutorials.
    Just Google It. √

    Just my $.02 (and that's about what it's worth) ...

    Here's what I'm studying ...

    **Teach Yourself C++ In 21 Days (Liberty)
    **Beginning Visual C++ (Horton)
    **Teach Yourself Data Structures and Algorithms In 21 Days (LaFore)
    **STL From the Ground Up (Schildt)

    ... and then on to Windows/MFC/.NET or to Linux/XWindows/KDE/Gnome ... not sure which yet. Maybe games?
