  1. Why does everyone keep saying that? First timers should not use Visual Basic. Yes, it's easy. But it makes learning any language after that so much harder. Visual Basic is only still supported because there are so many people who don't know any different. It should be deprecated as soon as possible.
  2. Yes, it's free. Microsoft is a lot more welcoming of free users lately. You can even get a (limited) version of Visual Studio for free here. It depends on what you want to do, because some stuff is paid, but I definitely suggest you look around on there and see what you can use.
  3. Not bad habits, per se, but it teaches you a syntax you will never ever use again. Most languages are C-style, however, C, C++, C#, but also Java, Javascript, Ruby, etc. By the way, small nitpick, C# is far more high level than C and C++ is. Those are near the lowest level you get in programming these days, before you hit assembly. To be honest, I've never really used a lot of tutorials or videos for learning C#, but MSDN is a brilliant resource. They've got tutorials, videos, reference guides etc.
  4. Now, this is what I'm warning against. Out of curiosity, why do you want to learn Visual Basic? It's a very out-dated and backwards language that is only maintained because so many people don't know any better. You'll be much more successful at many more languages if you skip learning Visual Basic. That is, unless you have a very good reason to choose Visual Basic, other than "it seems easy." Learning a language with C syntax (there are lots of these) pays off in the long run.
  5. I would recommend against VB.NET though. Sure, it's an easy language to learn, but it gives you a terrible basis to continue programming, because there are so very little (Visual) Basic languages out there. If you want to do .NET, I'd say start with C#. After all, once you've learnt C#, you can also do Java with little to no problems, and you'll have basic C-like syntax down which is what most languages today are based on anyway.
  6. In that case, I suggest looking around a lot. Different strokes for different folks. Personally, I've had the best experience with .NET languages, especially C#, but there are plenty of options out there. Python, Java, even Javascript if you want. Look for something you like, invest time in learning it, and move on from there. You can always come back and ask more questions about specific implementations once you've got the basic idea behind programming languages.
  7. Still, you're not going to find someone who's done all the work for you. This is the kind of thing you need to maintain yourself. This means learning a programming language, actually learning one, building something from scratch, and keeping it updated. Expect to invest a lot of time in this. I know you're probably looking for something you can set up in five minutes with minimal effort, but that's not the way the internet works I'm afraid.
  8. To be honest, you're going to have a hard time at this. Sites are constantly working, updating their CAPTCHAs to ensure nobody but the most dedicated bot-writers get through. In fact, most dedicated spammers use a sophisticated system where they put the CAPTCHA they want to crack on, for example, a porn site, and basically have their users solve CAPTCHAs for them. You do need some kind of momentum to pull this off, however.
