    Where do I start?

    Hi

    I'd like to program my own online text turn-based strategy game, like http://games.swirve.com/earth/. It's going to be my summer project . The thing is I've never programmed anything in my life before (except for HTML, some very simple BASIC programs.)

    1) Do you think PHP would be the best language for this project? I looked at pro/con articles at different sites, and PHP looks like the best one. http://games.swirve.com/earth/ (one of the largest, w/ 50k players) is programmed in CGI though.
    2) Can anyone suggest a beginner's book that will teach me everything I need to know to complete the game?
    3) Do you think I will be available to finish the game by the end of the summer?

    Thanks

    Alex

    Ugh, sorry for the double post. My browser hadn't refreshed, so I thought I had accidently pressed the preview button when I originally posted it.
