Hello, I have a few questions. Everyone always says that the best way to
learn programming, is to find something you want to program, and then figure

it web based, since i'm guessing most fantasy baseball owners are windows
users. The only programming I know is basic, and some very basic cobol, from

The final program hopefully would have a good draft program, player
transactions, automatic scoring updates, and a player database going back 5
years or so.
I want to make this using open source tools, so I was wondering what you guys
thought i should tackle first? If this is an improper list to ask these
questions, where would you suggest i ask?
You should first learn perl or php for your web interface coding (CGI)
and mysql perhaps for your database backend. I don't think gnome is much
of a use in this scenario.
