python takes about a day to learn 95% of it.

Re:

* master Python

I've already been through the tutorial twice before... I always forget it because I don't use it enough.

I want to use it for something.

I want to be able to sit down and go, "well, I have this 10 minute problem and I'll solve it using Python instead of Perl for a change...."

there is a little red book about python.. maybe 1/3 of an inch thick... its basically just a condensed reference book that costs something like $30...

i forget who it is by, but you should look for it. its handy. :)

ah.. actually.. amazon.com to the rescue
