How Much I've Forgotten

So, I bought the book, Dummies Guide to C++ (or something like that).
It's been so long since I've programmed, that I didn't even realize how much I'd forgotten.
As I go through the book, it comes back really fast, but it was something that I never really expected to forget, y'know?

I have like three other C++ books... so I'm not really sure why I decided to get this one, except:
1) it has a nice little compiler CD which I needed because I couldn't find the CD for one of the other books, and that compiler was on a different maching that I don't even have any more.
2) I needed a book that would explain things quickly and which were easy to understand, because I only need it for review, not to actually learn. I mean, who really needs 8 pages dedicated to explaining what int MyNumber is just initializing a variable? I don't.

Debating (with myself) whether I should just make another journal for my photography, and use this for writing... or if I should continue combining both as I'm doing now.
