    What are the best tips for learning Python within one month?

    i've got a handle on the python language itself, but what i need to learn now are algorithms and patterns. what's a recommended book for this? (guess it doesn't need to be python... any language that's practical [like, say, C++] would be fine)

    AtGames' Sega Genesis Flashback Console - Reviews

    i remember this from years back. not only is it tricky-tricky times but *also a time limit? (i'm personally glad to see that many modern games have done away with the concept of the timer altogether)
