Bought two Leonardos cos I thought I'd probably blow at least one of them up.  smiley-red

Fortunately I have not. Got to say, this Arduino thing is fantastic. I am so pleased with it I had to tell someone. So cheers for listening!  smiley

Yeah, I must say arduinos are awesome. I was working with a phidget before and they are so overly complicated. Arduinos are nice and simple and have a lot of power.
