Alright, so before I got on these forums I though I knew how to program pretty well, but I don't understand any of this computer talk. I want to learn to program well. Can anyone help me start programming?

Get a good book and start discussing in forums.

to learn programming (precisely programming in small), you need three things:
1. knowledge of data structure (eg array,linked list ,tree and
hash table are sufficient to a large extent)

2.knowledge of algorithm (eg searching(linear and binary) and sorting(merget sort etc) are sufficient

3. through knowledge of one programming language. I suggest to start with C.

For an overall view on programming a book called practice of programming by kernighan and pike is
very good in my opinion.
