sorry for perhaps asking stupid questions.
i got a parralax accelerometer yesterday and tried out the tutorial.
i don't understand what should happen. i' m newbie and it seems a little bit dumb.
i thought the accerelometer is an analog input.
if i understood in the tutorial, it can be used both:
digital (moving or not) oder analog (how fast it is moved).
so i have the code now on the board, but nothing is (was) happening?!
i checked the connections on the "picture" and putted the right violet (on the breadboard) wire one step to the right.
now the led is blinking circa twice a second.
is there a tutorial how to use the accelerometer as an analog input (perhaps it would be easier in graphical shematics)?
thank you for the great work, you do!

I suppose you work with arduino004, in that case, you have to change the serial instructions with the new syntax.
change beginSerial(9600) by Serial.begin(9600)
adjust the speed to your board (Tools > Serial Monitor Board rate)
change printByte() by Serial.print()
take a look at the reference page
