    Hi everyone, :)
    I was just made redundant on a kindof an IT job (project engineer for laptops).
    Thing is that this leaves me with nothing to go on a jobhunt. I've majored on computer sciences some time ago, so I'm a bit rusty on the programming :oops: , but I still kept in touch.
    Now I'm doing courses (financed from my old company :biggrin , I wouldn't pay for it, but on the other hand I'm not going to pass free courses 8) ) to prepare for MCAD / VB.

    So I'm looking forward of getting into it. At the moment I got not many question, they will come as time moves on :rolleyes:

    Hi,
    thanks for the welcome.
    After looking through som eof th ethreads, I finally remembered I wanted to ask one particular question.
    My programming experience is a bit rusty, so what is the best way to get some practise ?
    I have some books, but these excersices are a bit dull, and I got no fantasy :oops: at all.
    Maybe somebody has some ideas :rolleyes:

    Thanks
    Skeevy

    Rather depends on your interests, and also what programming languages you know.

    You could always write a better email client than Outlook Express? :biggrin

    What IDE are you using?
    If you don't have Visual Studio, you can get hold of both Webmatrix and Visual Web Developer Express from www.asp.net.
    Both are free and have loads of tutorials and exercises.
