How do I create a font?

I've always wanted to design my own font (typeface!), and the last two days I had been wondering what software to use, and just now StumbleUpon has led me to this great article. It explains it all.

I've actually done a kind of designer type that I use on whiteboards when I'm teaching my computer labs. I'll try and get some photos and post them to get your feedback.

If you are a new or highly skilled font designer or foundry, drop me your best tips or favourite software!
