Put my project in the middle of the basement, on the concrete floor, with nothing near it and left it on with both LED sequences running continously for 48 hours.

Nothing got warm... still running two days later...

I'm just curious.  What are you trying to demonstrate precisely?

I think that was "lighting more than 10 LEDs does not noticeably damage the board."

We need someone who's willing to donate an old Arduino board, and actually pull out the test equipment, and just actually what extremes starting with pin current, maxing them out, see how hot the atmega chip gets, repeat again after it's cooling down, actually once and for all have real data.

I've maxed the pins out before, even got the polarity wrong, lived to tell the tail even after seeing smoke come off the damn chip!

besides,


11. drop it in the sea
12. give it a child under 5
13. leaving it accidentally in the oven
14. leaving it out in a storm with lightning in the area
