    Ok first off I have sod all knowledge about programming, but I want to try and learn a language, just want to try and do some LCD and Winamp related stuffs.

    1) What’s a good language to start with
    2) Any sites / books people recommend to help

    I will prob give up after 10 mins or so but its worth a try :)

    Visual Basic is very easy to learn, the best book i can recommedn you is Sams learn Visual Basic 6 in 24 hours. Brilliant Book.

    I also know C++, some Assembly, Perl and Python.

    Ug ;)

    Why not try Delphi - very simple and VERY powerful language, it's what LCDC is written in - plenty of components and Delphi 6 personal edition can be had for free (although all apps come under a personal license or something!
