I've just bought one of those. I don't think it is a spacesaver, and sticking it directly to your Arduino board is inevitably a messy solution. If height is really that much of a problem, you might consider a proto shield with the components on the under side.
Further to yours, Michael, the pic below shows a short shield attached with ordinary pinrows. The LCD board is attached to the board just using the hookup wire threaded through, the objective being that it be no higher than the flat header. The limiting resistors are on the underside, as is the LED. It turned out that I had more height available than I thought, otherwise the LED would have been horizontal.Nickoly
Yes. My first Arduino was the Australian EtherTen. It uses the micro USB connector, as do all Freetronics clones. Needless to say, the Etherten also comes with an RJ45 Ethernet jack. The short proto board shown above is designed to clear the RJ45 with standard pins.
