So in addition to the Java book, I have now downloaded RunRev’s LiveCode, Which should help me understand programmey things.
The link is here: http://www.runrev.com/
Currently I don’t really know what to do with it but there are exercises and stuff in the Java book and I will attempt to do them in both LiveCode and Java, if that seems doable.
Tomorrow might get swallowed up by university work or I might post some assorted thoughts about English as a Lingua Franca, or the results of the first exercise. Either way, exciting things abound? Hopefully.
