First of all, I have just completed my C++ course, so I know a little programming. Now, I want to start with programming bots for IM. Really simple bots! That visit a site, register, and give output. I have VB6, and currently I'm downloading VS 2010 Ultimate. So, which one should I go for? VB .NET is what I want to try since I've heard a lot about it. Any suggestions?
