Use Uno with ArduinoISP to read and write fuses

Hello all,

as I'm playing around with a standalone ATmega328P (see here) I was at the point where I wanted to read and write the fuses of the ATmega. Several examples on the web have the usbtiny or other programming hardware. As I have a Uno board and burned the bootloader into the chip I wanted to take the same hardware for changing the fuses using avrdude. It took me some time to find the right arguments to get it running. This is why I wrote a short post in my blog.

If interested look here:

The idea is to find a system with minimal components and minimal power consumption that still has a useful application.
