Blink is like "hello, world". It proves the damn thing works.
The basic Blink sketch should never be deleted from the example sketches.
long previousMillis = 0; // will store last time LED was updated
Then mend it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,Then mend it, dear Henry, dear Henry, mend it.

"Blink without delay" is no less effective in demonstrating that the board works, and certainly no more difficult to compile and load.In a similar vein, I should like to see the "button" examples replaced by ones which have the button connected to ground and using internal pull-ups, to avoid people running live supply rails to external contacts.If the concept of inverted logic needs to be learned earlier than later - so be it!
