if that is also true for the 1284P fuse settings.
Quoteif that is also true for the 1284P fuse settings.I don't think we can blame the Arduino team for the 1284P fuse settings...I dunno. You have to change the fuses to upload programs without the bootloader anyway; if you know enough to do that, you should make sure they're all the way you want them to be.
Quotesetting fuse to destroy ee data every time chip is reflashed. whats up with that.irrelevant, since the chip is normally programmed via the bootloader, which doesn't do "chip erase" (and never erases the EEPROM) ?
