I just mention MFC to say that I've got a good idea of object - oriented
programming and working on GUI like interfaces.  I studied C before making
it over to C++, so I know how to use both effectively.

Yeah, I'm reading a linux programming book which will let me understand some
linux programming basics.
And for resources its just book after book.  Proud I guess, more they use me
to solve their computer problems.

Yeah, I have friends but most of them aren't really hardcore programmers.
One kid I know is pretty good at creating websites using CGI and other
scripts.  2 Other kids, seniors, I don't know especially well but know that
one does Perl alot and the other C/C++. I don't know how interested they'll
be but I'll tell them about it.
