Journal: How did you learn C? 1

Journal by di0s
I've never been much of a programmer (a few BASIC programs were my claim to fame), but as of late, I've found that I've gotten good using languages such as Expect, sh, and PHP.

I'd like to progress into C. I've tried Java, VB, and even C++, but have no desire for OOP just yet.

How did you learn C? I'm a visual learner and picked up what I know by doing projects. How useful are books, courses, and such for learning C? How long did it take to actually become productive and start creating useful apps?

Journal: Suggestions for a clear coat finish? 4

Journal by di0s
If anyone out there in /.-land is reading this, do you have any good suggestions/preferences on what kind of wax to use on a clear coat automotive finish? Yea, it's not news for nerds, but it is stuff that matters (to me at least ;).
