    I'd make a guess at around 3-4 hours. Not really sure cos I started off doing little bits here and there when I realised I was near 1000 posts and then finished it off last night in about 2 hours or something.

    And thankyou btw

    Oh and sorry to hijack, but neo, do you think it's better to learn C# over c++?
    It really depends on what you're coding for. If it's just going to be Windows-only (well, Windows-focused) utilities and such, then you could go for C#. Also, C# has more "built-in" functionality (it comes with regular expression handling, for example, as well as built-in code security. And there's SharpDevelop if you want an easy, free way to do Windows Forms, with no comparable product for C++.) On the other hand C++ is still more portable across platforms (if you want it to be), faster (which you won't really notice with utilities, but comes into play for, say, large databases or video games ) and more functional (you get a lot of what would be disallowed or restricted in C#, such as pointers (considered "unsafe code" in C#.)) And if you want to do game programming, be aware that pretty much every game nowadays is written in a mix of C/C++/occasionally some assembly. (On the other hand UScript seems to be based off of Java...) Also keep in mind that C# needs a wonderfully annoying .NET framework. (Assuming you're doing C#.NET, of course, which you should be if you're going to do C# at all.)

    TBH, if I was going to start off with a language I'd start off with C++. It's a good balance between C's old-fashioned procedural programming and C#'s icky Windows/MS invasion/VB'ness. I actually learned C++ a few years back and am mostly learning C# to do utilities like a UT .zip file installer and such There's no way C# is going to eliminate C++ anytime soon, especially seeing as how C++ hasn't even really supplanted plain old C yet.
