The point i was making is that graphics design most assuredly needs a mouse for precision and coding absolutely needs a keyboard...and when you add those two things to a tablet, you get a laptop...have you also noticed how we are making stands and keyboards for them now as well as 'mouse/pens'? So now they are just less functional versions of what we already had...many trapping you behind a paywall and a UI that leaves a lot of people frustrated...

Two things... A) The right piece of code and the right piece of hardware could burn through 76 million searches rather quickly...Facebook itself has how many users with phone numbers and addresses? My android fones like to automagically take all my google plus contacts/email addys and facebook contacts and put them in my personal contact lists for me (i have to shut this off, as I don't like having to scroll through thousands of contacts to find my local friends whom I desire to call... B) Go check out the people searches like etc...i have found my phone numbers and addresses clear back to when i was in the military in Colorado...the amount of information about EVERYONE on the internet is rather staggering... Either you don't know how to use google, or you're intentionally not using google properly to maintain your "Faith"...which is what some would call swimming in that river in egypt.

you have your game...what's the first thing you're gonna need to program? (I needed a GUI for a project of mine...teaching myself python...started there) Ask google how to accomplish this. You may end up spending time in and around the stack exchange sites...and as each 'challenge' arises, you dig around and find out how to write it yourself, and in the process, slowly teach yourself c# (or any other language for that matter)...the important thing you already have, is familiarity with object oriented programming...the rest is just syntax. You're likely to get better results that way. Also as you spend your time sifting through answers on google, you'll likely come across peoples suggestions for reading or teaching etc...good school sites, sites bent on game creation and language of your choice...
