I learned some HTML, Javascrip, PHP, CSS, CGI and stuff when I was building websites. I figure fuck it. Why not learn to create some actual computer programs that do something useful or atleast entertaining. I downloaded a BASIC compiler. Code seams pretty straight forward. After I learn that I'll pick up C code.
People look at it like it like it is something totally alien but really it's not. You can type right? Alright then you can type code.
