hi, i just want to say that i live in a world of networking gurus (Cisco and stuff), and have been searching for some encouragement to carry on with my quest into the world of animation and graphics. i hope this is a good place to start.

also i'm having trouble understanding threads and exceptions.
thanx

There is no better place to start learning than here at Javaranch. I wish you the best of luck in your venture.

I'm not sure what you expect out of your statement though:

also i'm having trouble understanding threads and exceptions.

If you need to read up on Threads and Exceptions I would suggest going first through the tutorials located at http://java.sun.com. As you start learning/struggling, you can post questions here and we will be more than happy to try and help you. But your statement is a little too open ended for any kind of real dialog on the subject.

Welcome to Javaranch!

Hi, Benjamin -

Welcome to the world of Java. I think you'll be happy with Java's animation and graphic capabilities. As you've already realized, threads and exceptions are vital topics to understand if you want your Java programs to go beyond the "Hello World!" stage.

As Gregg mentioned, start with the free tutorials Sun offers. Read the topics. Work the code. You'll get there. And JavaFolks are here to help, and they're in a class by themselves!

By the way, what's your tech background?
