Hi all, thanks for the fast replys, much appreciated. Manolis: Yep, its the book by Jesse, i never believe them when they say "in 24 hours", its a snag for them to sell the book, they just split it up into 24 sections to make it look like its possible.
Roland: Ive been working with PHP over the past 2 years, i understand the basics such as data types, functions, arrays, variables, objects ect, but i want to challenge myself and learn something that will benifit me when looking for work after uni, i've got another 4 years of learning before i complete my software engineering degree. Be cool to create stuff that i can use in FreeBSD, i know i have years of learning to do but im up for it.
