comment Which Resource Would Be Best for Learning C# / .Net?
Well, here is the thing. I live in central Illinois, and have been a PHP / iOS / Android programmer for what should be 4 years this upcoming spring. I work on Linux and OSX no problem, know lots of Apache and MySQL, and know and occasionally tutor C++. However, I'll finally have my degree in the spring, and want to move up to a /real/ programming job, but the only offerings around here (Bloomington, Champaign, etc), seem to be either C# or Java. I already know so Java, but would prefer C# if it is more like Obj-C or C++. So where do I go from there? Or do I even go there? Thanks! :)

C# in Depth looks pretty promising, I may have to grab it too!

@Joris: That's what OOP is though. Calling a method, or messaging an object, instead of calling an arbitrary function and passing it the object it is to operate on.

comment I've had some free time at work during maintenance releases, but all I do is surf the Internet
The offline bit especially sounds magical. What I wouldn't do to work at a place where people were passionate and didn't just nine to five it. It is soul sucking :(

comment Writing programs without graphical IDE
@K-RAN: All I use is Emacs, unless I'm using XCode for iPhone programming. With TRAMP it is unstoppable!
