It is easy to use a pocketavr, just plug it into the USB connector and ISP connector and you're ready.

However, there is a disadvantage:
If you want to use serial.print for example. ,when you want to see what's going on you have to disconnect the avrprogrammer and plug in a USB / Serial converter. And if you want to make changes to your sketch, you must disconnect the USB / serial and connect your avr programs again.

this can be done much simpler by using Coding Badly's TinyISP

http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,123388.30.html

With that you can leave all wires where they are, and just open the serial monitor, almost like you're used to from an Arduino Uno

Thanks guys, I managed to get it all done today, works perfectly... Except I stupidly made it only power from the ISP pins when the button is pressed, haha. Took a couple of tries to realize that.
