Good luck on your interview! Getting the job should lower the anxiety level considerably.

Then you can spend your paycheck on more Arduino stuff!

Nano #3 for some reason isn't resistant to shorting the Grd and VIN pins...
Okay, so this is a joke.

If you shorted the vin and ground pins would that actually damage the device? Current wouldn't be flowing through the device at that point.....

Hi, if there are no series components, then no, there would be no damage.
BUT
If you are supplying power through the DC socket.
There is a series component, the PCB tracks, depending on the power source you could blowout any thin tracks.
Especially if you are using a rechargeable power source and no current limit.

There's a fuse on the USB connect. It might be thermal reset.

Hi,
You need one of these;


Tom... :)
Annoying thing with those is when you plug in the circuit or wires you cannot read the legend.

I made a custom one which is much wider with easy to read legend.

Yeah. Once a paycheck it's... soldering iron.. LOL, you should see my current... um, the screw terminals... love how they open 40% and close down to 25%, shoot, they work... more nanos, with headers, header leads, breadboards, more passive electronics,
Just because I live in the states don't mean I care

Wait 'til you start holding stuff together with double sided tape!
