The best thing you could do for yourself is to buy a book...

Well a book teaches you "basics" of the language not how to program it to "battle.net" which is what i want to do.

Understand?

"Battle.net" is a fairly advanced topic.  It's best to start with something that's possible to do without ripping off all the code.  I didn't even attempt to make a bot until a couple yars after I started programming, because I wanted to make sure I was ready for it, and I didn't want to be asking stupid questions.  Of course, now with the bnls and the packet buffers and all the other crap, it's a lot easier to do, but you should be able to do all that yourself in my opinion :(

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.

Actually I wouldn't suggest that, it's like REALLY crappy. Start out with C++, it's interesting and extremely powerful. Yes Quik, Java is going to be the monopoly of programming languages, eventually.

Don't have a book? Well, go pick up some Dietel and Dietel ones, or www.johnsmiley.com, he has great books. If you cannot buy a book at the moment, Fyre has made some great tutorials which are located at...http://forum.clan-exile.com/viewtopic.php?t=55
Goog luck!

Not necessarily true.

Games dominate the market essencially. If you wrote a game in Java, I'd slap you until you bled.

Games are a small part of the market.  Business class applications that every business can't do without (Microsoft Office, for instance) dominate the market. 

Also, VB is a good place to start.  It gives you an idea of how to program, and it's simple and english-like.  The mistake people make is that they don't move away from VB once they've learned everything it has to offer, and they continue to beat a dead horse. 

Incidentally, Java runs much faster than VB (we're proven this at work), and there are games written in VB.  So there.

I remember reading somewhere and iago telling me that Java will soon take over C++. It does look like a lot more users are using Java though, since it works on every O/S.
