Wanted to learn Python? Stuck on a desk with no redemption. You have two very lucid options. One is use Google. I mean not the search engine, but their class on learning Python.
The videos are available on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/user/GoogleDevelopers (starting at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKTZoB2Vjuk&feature=plcp)
The other is new module of Python at code academy. It is truly awesome even if you dont know any programming!
So learn some awesome python today and be an excellent hacker tommorow!
