Along with Windows scripting, I do want to sooner get back into programming. Right now, I just kinda need a reason to put programming into practice. I can hack around with Perl and other languages just fine, and have had experience in others like VB and C. But someday when I get really down into learning one of them again, I’ll likely go the route of Python. Nicely enough, cdman just today posted about a couple freebie Python books to help out. Dive Into Python and Learning With Python.
Will I get into this this year? Honestly, I’d like to, but I’m not sure if I will have the time until late this year. I do have other plans, and I really hate overbooking my goals in a year. Thankfully, Perl has been around a long time and I suspect Python will also be as useful for that long or longer.
