in reply to General Computer Science: For Beginners
As an aside, you should spend some time searching the site and especially many of the members' home nodes. People post all kids of great links, tutorials and other fun snippets. You've been given a TON of great advice and information in the short time you've been here. My advice (for whatever you think it's worth) take at least the same time and care to explore all that information as was spent by quite a few monks providing it to you. :-)
If you need another head start my home node has a bunch of links worth exploring. Again, make sure you check out other monks that are listed there and especially one's who have replied to your questions. I hope you enjoy digging through all that information as much as I have and will continue to do. When you have specific questions on any of those materials definitely post it and (as you've already seen) monks will gladly help you.
Good luck perl.j :)
