Loved this place, still the best producers of power metal, and sparked my dreams of coding.

Ok well the tutorial from cplusplus isn't working out for me as of this moment.. I gotten to as far as pointers with functions but then it just started to make no sense to me and i feel like it wasn't explained that thoroughly. It was "targeted" for people who had no prior coding experience but i don't think that is the case.. lol

What part about pointers or functions are you having trouble with? Perhaps we could explain more in depth?

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

I was already a programmer when I read it, and it was just fine, it's what made me understand pointers for life, and English isn't even my main language.

Secondly, if it was written for people with no prior coding experience (as you stated), then it should also be just fine for programmers. It would be awkward for non-programmers to read a text targeted to programmers, though.

Nevertheless, as HOMER-16 said, what didn't you understand? We might be able to explain more "thoroughly".

Pointers work the exact same way as they do in axe, if it helps.

Well, except that adding to a pointer will automatically multiply by the size of the data being pointed to. No difference if it's a single byte pointer, of course.
