the disk-eject menu item that was in the OS for 10 years which all Mac users knew to avoid because of the disk swap nightmare.Apple never bothered to fix the menu item and it was just a useless pimple on the Interface, or worse if a newbie used it and got caught.
Conspiracy theorists have suggested that Arduino team deliberately created the off-grid design to make their hardware incompatible. Does an official explanation from the team exist of where this odd quirk came from?
It seems like an easy way to correct this would be to add a second digital header 'outside' the original one with normal spacing.
My solution to this misery has been to glue another row of pin headers directly outside the mis-spaced ones, leaving one pin blank and connecting the offset pins "diagonally", somewhat like this:oooooooo*oooooooo\\\\\\\\ ||||||||oooooooo.oooooooo
