"The word 'radical' derives from the Latin word for root. Therefore, if you want to get to the root of anything you must be radical. It is no accident that the word has now been totally demonized..." -- Gore Vidal

First, thanks =). Secondly, the easiest place to learn computer languages is right there where you're sitting now. Personally, I suggest learning XHTML first. If you're going to hack, you need to know the language of the Net. Next, for writing applications, try Python or Perl, whichever suits you. It's relatively easy to learn, along with XHTML and will teach you some good habits. Later you can move to C/C++, but don't try to learn them as your first language. But before you try any of this, you have to ask yourself why you want to hack. So after that, pick up a book on Python and/or XHTML, write a little, read a lot, and you'll find yourself getting into it and it'll become second nature. If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask ^^ No such thing as a stupid question after all =)
