Just to throw it out there, I am in Pearland.

Please let me know if any group or hell, over dinner kind of get together comes into an event

I am a COMPLETE Arduino noob and was researching kits/boards/projects and want/need to talk to Arduino capable minds.

I just got a Arduino Duemilanove off eBay.
I am no electronics expert but I can spot bad soldering and mis-aligned componentry.
This seems well made, headers are aligned. SMD soldering and alighments looks good, no overheated spots on the board, everything cut right underneath on components. My only real complaint is the ATMEL was slightly cocked on the socket
I think I may spot/resolder analog in #4 on the header, PIN 16 on the 20 PIN socket and get the backpin on the power plug for a full around soldering job simply due to me being anal.

When I got mine, I just plugged it in with Windows 7 64-bit. I took about 20 secs for it to find it but works fine.
My device manager just pops up the additional USB serial port once attached. Do you get any lights?
Open up the device manager and find your PORTS ( COM & LPT)
see if any devices attach when connected. Make sure you get at least a power light.
If you get no power, change cables, USB ports on the PC or even try another PC just to see if you get power to the Arduino.
Anyway, once it shows a USB Serial connection, use COM# for the software connection. Also make sure you have the right Arudino board selected.
