*deep breath*

Now trying to find a decent children's tutorial on programming. The ones I have found so far aren't terribly child-friendly. I feel this is going to be interesting.

If I don't get my new laptop soon, I can only assume next weekend will be spent force-feeding first semester C++ to both of them whether they want it or not.

(*checks dell website. still in production. starts lesson plans.*)

Yeah. This is going to go well.

Sometimes Dell is off. I ordered something from Dell, had it delivered, and the website still showed it was in production. You might get your laptop Monday.

I went over you last several entries to catch up on your life - boy have you had an eventful week!

Hope the computer thing works out soon.

*sends vibes to Dell*

I got "Enter" magazine as a kid (25 years ago or so) to teach me to program in Basic.

Do they have anything like that nowadays?

Now trying to find a decent children's tutorial on programming.

*dives to download*

Fanchild figured out Google Messenger about 15 minutes after I set his up on his laptop - including the firefox extension that tells you when you have new mail - and it's pretty much his favorite thing ever. *G* He can talk to me from his room without actually TALKING to me or, yanno, leaving his room. Heh.
