YooHoo. My first Mega arrived by courier today. Mega excited.
Looking at the female pins, it looks like it may be the same spacing as a PCs IDE ribbon cable. Can anyone confirm this, and would there be any drawbacks to using a ribbon cable to connect the pins to a breadboard ?
If it would fit, can you tell me the technical name of the male-to-male connector pin strips that I would need to connect the female board pins to the female IDE cable connector ? I would need to order it from an online supplier, but can't find the correct name for it.
