I powered up the new Uno over the weekend and got a small surprise. The default power up application is, as always a flashing LED. Only this time it gives one short flash followed by four long flashes. This is the number one in Mores Code so the Uno is introducing itself.

You you think the team had a bet on how long it would take some one to spot?

Neat!

I wondered why it was blinking in that particular pattern.  I didn't recognize it as Morse Code, but the pattern did catch my attention.  I knew it wasn't just the usual "Blink" sketch.
