Default Computer Programming

hi there,

i have finally decided i am going to put my mind to it and learn how to programme, but i have a small problem,

i have no idea where to start !

could n e 1 reccomend some languages to learn some compilers, some free tutorials / videos / books, or maybe some that aint free but not too expensice ?

short of going to college what is the best way to learn to programme ?

im open to anything from web programming / java / javascript / c++ / Vb script.

anything i just need a starting point and a way to learn it

well in response to all i already know html i shuda said that

wso javascript then java then C++ looks like the way im going to go, good idea ?

also r there n e languages that "compliment" each other, like.

(and i have no idea here its jus a random example)

after you learn c# always learn C++ coz there are very similar and c++ is jus an extended version of C#

??? i know ^ thats completely wrong but you get what i mean ?

are there n e languages i should learn together of after the other ?

All share the basics such as arrays, variables, functions/subroutines etc but all languages are different. I've found PHP and perl to be the most similar
