    programming block.

    This seems to always happen. I feel like i have nothing to program because i'm not skilled with any add-on libraries yet, so i'm stuck with text graphics. Any suggestions to get me going?
    Sorry, but i'm a Code::Blocks man now.

    Learn OpenGL and do some graphics. It's easy to get started - just use one of the demos at nehe.gamedev.net to get started.

    Particles are fun to work with. Create a fireworks particle system.

    Buy a book either on OpenGL or Direct3D and enjoy. You can learn without a book but with is much less painful. Tutorials and even the SDK docs cannot always be trusted and don't always explain what is hapenning 'under the hood.'
