    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Hi,

    Firstly excellent list I was just wondering if you knew of any programming tutorial websites that you or members of these forums may know of or recommend?
    And would anyone recommend a language to learn
    I've played with C (hello world etc) a little..
    and have been enjoying Micro Marts (UK Computing magazine) 12 week article on C but was wondering if any of yourselves could recommend a language or resources...?

    Anyway I digress.....

    Once again thanks for the list it is awesome,

    B.
    Always learning....

    Just to keep this thread on topic. I am going to settle this for you real fast.
    Learn a language. An easy way to start, is with bash. Basically pick one that seems somewhat interesting to you, and learn it, then pick another, rather, rinse, repeat. Some big names are python, perl, ruby. They are in no order of importance, and of course there are many more. There are endless arguments pro and con for the different languages. Further there are many threads here on the subject.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Thanks for this impressive list of resources. Definitely something I will be reading over the course of learning my way through using the various tools provided with backtrack.

    I'm migrating my list to the stickied thread in the Experts Forum:
    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ted-links.html

    and will be maintaining it there.
