Actually it's confusing as h$ll !

I went and bought a new DVM because of the readings I was getting, but it turns out I get the same readings with the new one!
According to SparkFun it doesn't have the typical Row Col setup.
Which pins require the pull up's ? which pins are col & rows?
The tutorial isn't meant for a 7 pin setup.

Confused as usual

I easily found the pinout with a pen, sheet of paper, and a multimeter/testlight took maybe 10 min.

7 8 9   6

3 1 5  

pinout found by following steps on http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/KeypadTutorial
