Windows Programming

I created a headace Diary online a while back to track my own headaches as well as collect some weather data. I was telling Shea about it and he said I should "market" it. While I had intended for it to be something that had an install script and all for people to use, it requires someone to have a server that has mySQL and PHP5 on it. So chances of it being used by anyone other than web geeks was small. So now I'm spending my free time learning how to program in windows. I know how to program in C++ and C# is my new latest conquest in the programming languages but I've never done anything in windows. All my programming was done with the DOS interface as I wasn't a Computer Science Major or a Software Engineering Major. So I bought two books. Build a Program Now! Microsoft Visual C# 2005 Express Edition (it comes with the software, but you can download the Express Edition online, and I had done so two computer reformats ago so I had them already, yay! and installed them about a week ago) and Beginning Visual C++ 2005, while this one is not tailored to the Express edition I think it will be a good resource as I plan on writing the program in C++ because I know that much better, but C# has always been something I wanted to learn, and this is a good way to begin. Though my plans may change when I start programming and may switch to C# since I"ll know the software a bit better. But we'll see. I have a general idea of what I want it to do and alot of other things I hope I can do. So my first windows program is underway. We'll see how it goes.
