Personally, i think that you should have to take a little quiz about the rules before you can even post. Something like 5 questions or something.

Yes, insted of connecting the dtr, connect the two reset pins. Then you wont have to hold the reset button, and it will work normally. I do it all the time.
Make sure you take the chip out of the usb board.

I mean the folder called libraries in the folder the arduino IDE is in.

I just put my libraries in the libraries folder in the arduino folder.

Im pretty sure the pro mini has a voltage regulater on it.

I work for a school as a electronics teacher. I co-desined a kid friendly platform based on launchpad by ti (convincing school to move to custom arduinos, but taking a while), and belive me, before you blame the hardware, check for human error. If noone did, millions of man-hours would be wasted. (Hint, show us your code, and we can help you).

if you can get a gyroscope royating fast enough to have low to no procession, you might get a good picture of one object.

You could get pictures of the brightest stars with a normal picture.

Well, we are working on a $300 temp unit. including launch. It looks like it would use a $200 rubber burning rocket.
Spawned from the joke we made during figuring out how to launch, " Just buy it a ticket for spaceship 2 and throw it out the window."
And yes, CUBE SATS ARE WIN!
The only problem with the rubber rockets is our simulations show that we cant throw it into a stable orbit eaisly, hence the purposful decaying orbit. Don't want to lose it and have it hit the iss or something, and have the full wrapth of nasa upon us. So to save money, we are working to toss the sat out before the rocket hits the hight it would burn up at during the fall, and salvage the rocket.

That said, i was just giving an idea to provide heat.

What you could do is make a micro sattlite and launch into low orbit, ant use a tiny blast to get some spin on it, then just snap photos at ranndom, and have it send back thumnails. If it looks good, keep it.
I am working on something like this whith many oter people for my local university. For heating, we are areogel insluating, and putting 1 volt less then the max input into a voltage regulater when the temp starts to drop. In our vaccum/cooling chambers, it has proven to be more then enough. Turning it on for just a short time was enough to keep it in safe limits for well over a day.

This local lab has a 100m i2c cable. The key is sheilded wire and data redundcy.

For the record, the latest versions of the Duemilanove don't have the solder pads with the trace between them.  Earlier ones do, the later ones don't.  Most compatibles and knock offs have the pads as per the early original boards.
In that case ive been ripped off many a time. Why not just re-instate that trace?

No they dont.
A: The RESET-EN trace is on the schematic.
B: Check your arduino between the usb port and the ftdi chip.
C: Its a trace between two soilder pads, not a jumper.
D: Here is a picture, and besides the circle, not edited( you can check the 2009's page) The circle shows the trace.

quote form the 2009's page:
The Duemilanove contains a trace that can be cut to disable the auto-reset. The pads on either side of the trace can be soldered together to re-enable it. It's labeled "RESET-EN". You may also be able to disable the auto-reset by connecting a 110 ohm resistor from 5V to the reset line; see this forum thread for details.

Strange, my 2009 has the trace in question.
