So i ask you the Slashdot readers, What Programming Language would you sugguest to a new programmer"

jrwr00 writes "I used to be a coder for Zend until I got laid off three months ago. Now that I have some free time I'd like to spend it finding a way to fight racism. I've thought about rounding up some disgusting people who mislabel files on Kazaa to ban them from the Internet. Do you think this would be helpful? Have any other Slashdotters had any experience in this area, or are most of you just interested in sinking the Bismarck? I'd love to hear your ideas"

jrwr00 writes "I found this very useful program today, Here is the info from there page, its even got the source!
Panic Button is intended to help people that support end-users, either sysadmins/helpdesks, or those that simply help friends and family. I got the idea after getting frustrated by reports like "I had this error message on my computer. It said that the whatsit had caused a thingy operation". No-one ever wrote down error messages, and could never remember what they said. I tried to teach people how to take screen shots, so that they could send screen shots of error messages, but that didn't work.

So, I wrote Panic Button. The user clicks (or double-clicks) on an icon in the Windows system tray. Panic Button then takes a screen shot, and displays a form where the user can enter some details. When the user clicks the "Send" button, the screen shot is sent to a pre-configured e-mail address as an attachment.
