I'm new to C++. Basically what I have done is start PHP, get pretty far but not into MySQL or Cookies, move to Python, get halfway through GUI and socket programming and now move to C++. I want to stay in C++. I know all the basics like the loops, ifs, cin, cout, and all that. I want to make a fully functional chat room (In DOS to start with before I get to GUI stuff). Or just make something useful. I've made a readme making program in Python as well as a program to download dictionary terms off the net. That's basically it though, I want to make some sort of small game or something. If someone could point me in the right direction that would help. I know C++ is capable of practically everything.
