I'm experiencing some frustration here! Learning on my own this is the only source of feedback I get. Missoula isn't exactly a hip town in the tech area. Though we are a collage town I am not a student and my friends are just gamers. No one is interested in programming and I feel alone. I'm working on this book inventory program and after finally getting my menu system partially implemented I am beginning to feel it isn't very good and I need some better ideas. I have a habit of not finishing programs, but want to stick with this one. I still have some major hurdles including file processing and implementing my query and edit options. About all it does now is allow me to enter books and display them pretty lame. Everytime I plan some program in my head it gets all twisted when I start writing it. I also wish I could get my output looking pretty and want to try some cgi forms but I think I should just work with the ugly console until my skills are a little better. Well that is my venting, I took a break and played UT 2003 for three hours at adept on the bomber run ladder. I finally forfieted the match leading with over 400 frags because it was a long frustrating stale mate. My hands where beginning to cramp. Maybe this is stupid but I feel like getting stoned and writing some code. This will probably not be very productive though.

Just stick with your project as long as you can and still be sane, then forget about it until you learn more and later come back and you will probably find it's a lot easier...also if the project is hard and you really want to finish it, plan before you start coding.

maybe you should choose a better topic for your program? something that will actually be fun to do. Maybe a game, or an image manipulating program? there is so much to do, (warning:cliche ahead) the possibilities are endless man. Almost all the programs I'm asigned at school are a real drag to do, but one has to get them done and learn to do more enjoyable things on your own.

Be persistent,
