Nothing else beats that feeling of finally, finally, finally getting something to work. (Especially when it's something relatively simple but completely new to you!) I'll have something post-able soon (hopefully some time tomorrow.)
As a side note, it was great fun letting the littlest one type away in a string in the source file to show her how everything you do in the editor can have a big impact on the screen. Now she can brag that she's been coding since she was six!
