    If a go a school about Programming I will just know about programming. But I study on a lot of thing. Once, I'm an athlete. Study on applied sport sciences, philosophy, sociology and subbranches of these. And I still got a lot of time. But when I go to school, It's limiting me with their rules etc.



    Utter nonsense. This sort of "too cool for school" delusion will not help you in your life. As smart as you might be, there's a huge benefit to addressing a subject with the guidance of a knowledgeable teacher and a room full of other students.

    Let's point out again: you've already, by your own report, lost several years because the teacher you've chosen - yourself - doesn't understand the material. Do you really want to continue with this experiment?
  4. In Topic: Twitter Client on Terminal

    Looks pretty cool. Have you thought about writing a little tutorial about working with the twitter API?
  5. In Topic: Good C++ Starting Point?

    I would steer you away from anything that insults your intelligence in its title. If you're a "dummy" or a "complete idiot" or any other sort of mental deficient, you're probably not going to find anything useful in programming. Try marketing instead.

    Look instead for books that seem to target motivated and intelligent learners, and try to act like one of those. (the suggestions in the previous post look good to me)

    unfortunately I currently have no means of income, as I am still in school


    Have you tried your local library? Often a good source of books, in my experience.

    Your theme song is both hysterical and sad. I doubt the truth in it, but I get the point.
