    I never considered it rude, but I would certainly correct it if people were to complain. I do not speak French; I am simply borrowing off of the famous René Magritte painting.

    Yes, I know, KeLviN. Unfortunately, the custom user title is too short. (I couldn't even finish the word "personne", let alone provide the proper attribution.)

    Perhaps you should make an effort simply because it is the polite thing to do.

    lol, I am able to communicate my ideas well, i'm just lazy when typing, what's the point og being gramatically perfect in a forum. And to answer your question, my favourite area is "pure/abstract" and i detest applied. I'm trying to specialise in topology (linear-piecewise) or i may possibly head towards knot theory and links, but atm i'm just getting a good overall grounding at uni, then if i get in for the part 3 (4th year) i'll get more in depth with the 2 above topics. That's if i get into the part 3 course, i not phd at another uni (maybe ucl or warwick).

    This is totally untrue. If you are of this belief you are a poor excuse for a math student. I happen to have a degree in mathematics, and the ability to effectively communicate your ideas clearly and accurately is a requsite skill. How far along in your program are you, may I ask? Are you studying theoretical or applied mathematics?

    People have already cut you slack for this thread, but you sure aren't warranting continued consideration.

    Thankyou for saving me from searching.
    Comments like this (saving a user from searching) cause me to think that providing links and performing searching is the WRONG way to be helpful on these forums.

    How will people ever learn to search on their own?

    Does being helpful (in this way) create dependency and encouragement for this behavior? (Users learning on their own.)

    /me woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

    Well mathematics is predominantly a numerical subject, hence a lack of proficiency literacy-wise is irrelevant. And also careless typing is mainly to blame. And also www.cam.ac.uk is the correct academic institution of which i am a padawan (search for trinity college). Anyway i shall stop needlessly wasting disk space, and peruse some of the links given kindly above, thankyou. And whoever said i have the skills of a 7 year old japanese girl, is not too far from the truth, i am half jap, however male. I would also hope the over-exuberant lexicon utilised within this post would suggest an opposing view to that given in someone elses opinion. Thankyou for saving me from searching :) i think i'll start with top link.

    I could have been unfriendly to you, but instead offered you suggestions to help you solve your problem. If your intention is to solve the problem, the response provided should have been accepted as helpful.

    OB:
    Whats the best programing language to start with
    Another user like you, asked a question previously asked before. and was redirected to
    Programming/Networking another user who asked a question included in another thread.
    another thread
    another thread like the one you started with slight variation
    Another thread like the one you started, but this one asks where more than what.
    Question about what language to start with
    Thread on python requesting feedback as a good language
    Something sort of kind of like this in another language
    Java Vs C++ amazing that this too is duplicated:
    C++ or Java
    Thread on ASM/C++
    C++ vs Perl

    And the above includes less than 25% of total posts found after 3 searches.

    This way, if/when this thread gets closed, people will have easy clicking, and maybe I can just copy and paste for the next person who asks this question.

    [Added content:]
    Ah yes. And, when you actually look through the threads, find the one that is closest to your questions AND is most recent before you reply. Bringing back 2 year old threads is worse than bringing back threads which are only 4 months old.

    Edited for content.

    Try to find out what you can, and try to determine beforehand if this is a question someone else probably had before you did. If so, there is a good chance that the discussion has already taken place~ I didn't mean to jump your case- I'm not even a moderator- Just was getting tired of seeing the same questions over and over again. No harm no foul. Besides, I can't drive off the other insane people like myself (read: math person)-. Search function: learnit, liveit, loveit.
