Layydeees aaand gentlemen! I present you with the output of
my very first bit of Java

"Hello, World"

(Remember! You've seen it here first!)

Success! That was the trick! I really appreciate the help.
I've always found this part of the learning curve the most
frustrating- that of learning the ground rules. Thanks guys!
