A very basic FORTRAN resource from NCI.

Another resource, however it doesn't cover the new additions in 2003.
Another online resource I use when I need to look something up.

As far as I know though, and according to my maths teacher who has extensive experience in the field of computational fluid dynamics, it's gradually being phased out and replaced by C/C++.
Compiler optimisation has come a long way nowadays, and I think Fortran work is mostly maintaining and extending existing code - but anything new would be written in C/C++ instead.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

You should add to the python section. This is a pretty good interactive online tutorial with a built in compiler. It really helps with the basics of python.

I've found this site really useful in explaining concepts that I'm struggling with. It has multiple examples in a wide variety of languages so I think it would be helpful to add to the OP:

also for perl add:

Programming Perl 4th Edition - O'Reilly

You should also get some Apple stickers so it won't get viruses, an Alienware logo so it can play games amazingly and some Razer gear so everyone knows you are totally 1337.
