Learning basic programming

So I have to take a first year programming course as part of my physics degree. The first half of the semester is ForTran (which seems ridiculous, considering that nobody really uses that shit anymore), then we move on to C.

It has become a hateful obsession... I've spent upwards of ten hours this week on a single program that's worth less than a percent of my final grade. I got the basic functionality worked out in the first couple of hours, and probably would have got a low A on it at that point, but I've been consumed by the perverse need to make this fucker perfect. Now I have a physics test tomorrow that I haven't studied jack shit for because I've been spending all my time at the library editing this goddamned code.

It is interesting though, I must say.

Definitely glad I stuck around college for a few extra years to add java and visual basic to my accounting degree. Accounting sucks ass. I'd rather be coding something in pretty much any language than doing accounting stuff.

Definitely something I've thought about getting into. I've listened to a lot of podcasts that have advertised this 30 minutes for 30 days course that seems like a good intro..
