Awwwwww shit. I pulled out the power, but it was way too late when I saw tendrils of smoke and I knew it. I used a RJ-11 pair of jack and receptacle, they cross-over. Y becomes K, K becomes Y... etc. Anyhow, I never understood crossover and hate it with intensity now.

I hope you are not doing that in a public place where you could damage the health of others.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

I find the Nano easier.  Takes fewer papers and is easier to light.
Do you use filters? Do you solder the joint?
BEWARE! Looking at the OP, this appears to be a habit forming passtime. You could get hooked and end up on the hard stuff, mainlining megas.

Now that you mention it I think he has been overdoing the neo-pixels as well.

LED poisoning?

LEDs do contain arsenic. I think I burnt my 5th one today. I don't know what I did this time, maybe something shorted but it shorts the lot out when plugged in.

Ahhhhhhhh........

Seriously Matt, learn to bootload bare 328P chips. They're down to about $2 each if you buy 10 or so. When, not if but when you purn a pin what you do is pry the burned chip of the Uno socket and replace it with one you had bootloaded earlier, after disassembling the faulty circuit of course!

Your sketch can sense ongoing process events in time.
Your sketch can make events to control it over time.

It could even be the VR that smoked. It appears damaged.
