Okay, SDL.Net is all up an running, and it's just great. Rob Loach and jendave have been of huge help over on the SDL.Net forums, so here's a shout out to them.
What I really love is VS's code exploration, which makes this really easy to learn. It's a huge help. On Monday, I'm going to make a little blocks game. It's not Tetris because I'm sick of Tetris, but just a little game involving building blocks. If my schedule allows for it, I'll finish it up and post it next week.
Again, thanks guys.
