The other part of the reason, is that I find it hard to force myself to stick to a schedule for learning how to program, and get easily distracted.
Indeed, distraction is a bitch (dunno how much time I spent in forum instead of doing something productive). For that reason a course with a fix timetable is pretty useful. And my post above was maybe a bit too much stressing the anti mood. A course probably does no harm, but I think it's probably not the most efficient way (given you target Hollywood/MorphOS).
Plus university courses often have quite a pace. I did a second full study recently and I really have my problems to keep the pace of the 20-25 year younger students (or the pace I had 20-25 years ago during my first study) who have a fresh brain and no kids at home...It was quite a ride, but it's doable. I only need to pass one last exam to finish this study (so much for distraction, back to my stack of books now).
Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
