Hi and welcome! If anyone asks where you came from tell them mmcdonald sent you... it may not be true (It isn't.. but they don't know that), and I'll send you a cookie. That way you get a cookie and I get a pat on the back :3
DaniWeb is a great place to learn and over the last year I have picked up so much. In fact a year ago I didn't really know anything about programming at all!
If you want the best responses just be clear with your questions and they will usually just roll in. Don't be lazy though and make sure you have a go at something first! No one will mock you here for posting weak or insecure code; so be confident!
