1337 = elite or leet, it's a term derivated from the Demo Scene, it's sound more like a childish joke nowadays.

Take a look at http://www.scene.org if you don't know what the Demo Scene is.

OldSkool rulez :)

The steps are fairly easy:

1. RTFM

2. Work

3. There is no 3rd step

Step 3 is 'make profit', hopefully :)

How about send in the invoice as the third step?

or running around with your shirt pulled up over your face hugging your mates after every sequence hits the back of the net?

OH and on the RTFM point DD why don't you download the manual from newteks download page as a pdf?

also browse those numerous tutorials across the web

We can't keep on telling you how to make objects you have to figure out some things for yourself. Look at a pencil what does it look like? What shapes are found on a pencil? Is it sharpened? There are four basic shapes that can manipulated into anything and that does not take in affect that you can draw splines or go point by point and conect those points to become a polygon. If you do not understand about these simple shapes I would suggest you take an Art Class at your local community college to get the basics.
