What more can i say, i use to program on the Commodore vic 20, and c64, but that was 15 years ago, started to take some night courses in amos on the Amiga, then then commodore died, and took a few courses in Turbo pascal, but i lost interest, and that was 10-12 years ago, if not more.
So today 2005 the most i can remember is a bit of c64 coding, but a lot has slipped my mind. so basically i am starting from scratch, and i chose to learn C++.

So fare i have gotten a few books
Accelerated C++
C++ Common Knowledge

I plan on getting a few more, in the coming weeks and months.
I will keep people updated on my progress, so you can see how long it takes me to learn C++
I'm not taking any classes to learn this, all the help i get, is from books, the Internet, and the nice people around the web.

Greetings to the world of journals!

C++ can be a tricky beast to master; I'm having trouble right now trying to remember all the techincal stuff with templates, operator overloading and other weirdness. But if you keep at it and ask questions on the forums when you get stuck then I'm sure you'll be coding like a pro in no time!

Bastard...

Ussual intro:

Welcome to Journal Land, and I finally got to someone first. Rate++ all the way, man. Maybe if you're chill enough, you'll get to roll with my crew. Ha ha haaa... just kidding... but no, really.

If you want your journal to be popular, here are the three keys...

Post lots of pictars. Nobody wants to read your stuff w1th0ut teh p1kt4rZ!

Post alot about whatever project you're involved with. Try to give people insight as to the details of what you are doing while using as little code as possible. Remember, this is a journal, not a tutorial.

It's alright to get personal, and even be liberal about talking about the many details of your life. I know I do. But remember, nobody wants to sit back and load 20 pictures of you and your sister's boyfriend with dreadlocks pretending to eat a cat and trying to pass the dude off as yourself (little nudge, you know who you are... kidding, you're my main man) in dire hopes that you'll write a few sentances about your game project.

Anyhow, a sincere welcome, and have a great time!

Good luck. Your "ancient" knowledge will give you a deeper understanding of your new task than you think.
