Absolutely true. Learn the basics of programming with VB6. It's what's called a "high level" programming language - this means that it's close to just typing plain english in the code window. (The term can be a bit confusing, I know ^_^;; ).
It's a great learning language. Learn to do fun stuff with VB6 and you'll be well on your way to programming even more stuff in languages such as C++ and various web languages.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
