This my fist post on this site so yes I'm new, and yes I'm probably gonna be asking something you guys are tired of reading and I'm sorry in advance.
I'm not new to computers I've had them sense I was a kid, I'm 25 now, but for most of my life I didn't care about anything, anyone, or really advancing in life. That was till I met my wife, but long story short my heads screwed on straight now and I know what I want. I desperately want to learn about computers at this time I do not have the money to pay for school or anything like that but when I do I plan to go for networking security.
Over all though I wanna learn everything I can bout computers, which yes includes hacking, have no interest in being a "black hat hacker" as I've head them called. I just wanna be able to mess around with my friends who are out of state learning computers and are hackers them selves. So now as I go around my ass to get to my elbow but I was wandering if you guys had ideas on books, sites or even classes I could get or take to get my foot in the door and start learning on my own?
