    Right! Spring Break is over,

    I successfully read a 750 pg. book on C++ in a day, followed by "Art of War..." time to move on to 3-D Virtual Environment Graphics Programming! I'm sure I can get it in about a week. Give or take a week.

    I've just started learning Python.

    .. my plan is to master it and then move on to VPython. Is that the best choice for 3D Virtual Environment graphic design or should I try Unity or some other language first? RED!
