I ripped the anti theft unit out of our car , who is going to nick a 95 civic with rounded corners ? ( my beloved missus can't see the corners of the car when navigating past concrete blocks in the mall carparks, but nobody parks near us when they see the wings. )
45 years of editing projects with a knife and soldering iron, then I found Arduino !

Hmm, so you stole removed the anti-theft device? Interesting that you can do that.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!

Those of us who are working on microcontrollers might think upon the part about some organizations wanting computers to only run "trusted code".
They should do that with their computers.
Who decides what is "trusted" and how much do they think they should be paid to enforce their will?

What will they do, outlaw compilers? When programming is outlawed, outlaws will write code!
