right after I uploaded one of my own programs, my RS232-TTL converter blew (max232 workalike by ST) leaving my boarduino dead in the water. It works just fine, I simply can't talk to it. Happily, I was sitting on a "real" Arduino, not having even unboxed it yet. This is my first actual Arduino... So, I'm now a "Legit" Arduino user I'll skip getting another max232 for now and use the Arduino as an ISP programmer for the Boarduino I think. I've been meaning to do this anyway, as I also got a "SmartLCD" device off ebay a while back, it's a ATMEGA168 with a dedicated 4x12 LCD and a couple of buttons.. think I got it for $3 shipped.. just haven't done anything with it as it needs an ISP programmer and I've been too lazy to load the sketch.
