My Arduino finally arrived!!

The equivalent of "Hello world" on my Arduino board (slight syncopation added):


It finally arrived in the mail. Actually it might have been sitting there for a while; my condo building recently switched over to an online information portal with electronic parcel delivery notification. I was only able to log in today for the first time.

I'm excited about trying to build a bunch of simple circuits and relearning some basic electronics. Then if it proves to be fun I may progress to some minor toy hacking.

Any Arduino fans out there? Feel free to point out some fun (but novice-oriented) projects! Meantime, I'll be slowly working my way through the learner examples...
