Arduino first project

I finally got to plug in my Arduino Mega 2560 micro controller.  Everything worked after I ran the sample application.  I extended this slightly to blink three leds on a breadboard.  Simple beginning I know but we all have to start somewhere.  The IDE which is downloaded from the Arduino website will run on a variety of operating systems, I am using 64 bit Ubuntu Linux but it ran equally well on Windows.
