It'll be good to try.

 

I study C and C++ but I'm not that good in them. I guess I have a long term math problem. :(

I love computer maintenance tasks.

Some of my favorite programs:

Wordpad -basic word processing

Notepad - temporary clipboard and basic scripting module

Windows Media Player 12- video, music and online radio player

Windows Media Center - live TV, local FM radio

CCleaner- handy computer maintenance tool

 

If something fails to work after using the registry cleaner, use SYSTEM RESTORE.

I hate parenthesis, brackets and braces like that off of the C Languages. That's why i chose to study PHP. Oh....

No fate but what we make

+1. I'm into VB.NET mostly, but I'm a bit of a PHP fan too :)

 

I love vb personally. It grew on my from a young age when msn chat rooms where open around 1999. My dads friend made on my behalf the authentication to connect to msn's gatekeeper. Then the rest i learned my self. Good old vb6. That lead me on to connecting mIRC to msn chat rooms. So that was my first scripting language.

 

Picking up vbscript was easy. Mixed that with html obviously. I started learning asp.net but did not really like the syntax.

 

So now i just stick to vb.net and started php. I need to learn xml better though for vb.

I've found that vb.net has really sucky XML support, compared to other languages I've used - such as Java. Sometimes it baffles me. ActionScript (2) is a neat language to learn too, mostly because you can't actually break anything while testing. I recently learned it to build an "App Store," the thing sucked and the language is really messy, but really easy to get your head around. It's also light on the parenthesis, so it's a good place to start if you want to progress to C based languages.

I'm Shane.

This is awesome, it's actually how I got started in computers. programming games and logo programs in basic on a commodore 64 from a magazine.

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

I think C# is awesome, because it hasn't got the downsides of C/C++ (pointers, malloc, and so on), and has great things (WPF, LINQ, and others). Once you get used to Lists and their LINQ extension methods, it's hard to use arrays again :P

I hate scripting languages - I know a little bit of JS but all those vars with no type are really ugly...

I know a little C# myself, but I'm trying to fully learn it at the moment. Unfortunately, Microsoft's default programs for doing this are much too expensive. Any suggestions?

Visual C# Express is nice, and free. Kaxaml used to be great to learn XAML (what WPF and Silverlight are based on) without coding, but I don't know if it still works with Silverlight 4: http://www.kaxaml.com/

Another free editor is SharpDevelop: http://www.icsharpcode.net/opensource/sd/

yes wtf u quoting me 4

How come you "..hate parenthesis, brackets and braces like that off of the C Languages" and prefer PHP, when PHP itself is influenced by such language?
