It's a pleasure.

Sometimes I think that all would be programmers should be
forced to write a "Hello World" to transmit out of a serial port
in assembler on hardware that carries no OS - just to teach 
them about interrupts and time.

I would require them to hand assemble the code too, to make
them appreciate what a compiler or an interpreter does.

And if you fail the test, you get taken out and fed to the 
sacred crocodiles.
