it wasn't until i came across these wonderful little microcontrollers that I really even thought of using them. I supose that there was always the mysitque of programming that got to me.
since seeing how easy and straight forward they are it has inspired me to bite the proverbial bullet and learn to program.
Do you use the socket on the UNO to do the programming or wire from the UNO pins to your circuit?
These things are really versatile. The real magic of this doesn't come from the hardware (tbh, the board isnt all that well designed in my opinion), but the IDE and the libraries that come with it. Those goodies transform a regular old atmega328p into this beast
But I now use the Arduino as an ISP programer! DEFINITELY worth the 30 odd dollars I spent on it.
Thank you very much!!
I should be able to give the Arduino a decent workout on Memorial Day weekend. I'm anxious to find out how well it works with high impedence inputs and small dot matrix LCD displays.
Great! I just received a UPS e-mail, mine arrives tomorrow!

Looks like only 3 people have been tagged as review pending, with 5 kits available who got the other kits? Also looks like they were the first 3 to enrol. If this is the case it is not very random selection. Just my 2c worth.
Keep up the good work guys. Hopefully I am luckier on another road test.
