  • i went to my local microcenter and i asked for an arduino. first it was $13 more expensive two they didn't know what an arduino was. i didn't buy it there and order one from an internet store near my house and went to pick it up

  • Saddly you can't bitbang these easy.
    if you are confortable with soldering you can try get a avr programer such as the USBtinyISP from Adafruit or get one from sparkfun such as the STK500 USB Programmer and use the arduino IDE to reprogram Bootloader

  • Quote: when was the last time you managed to destroy an ATmega328 and needed to repair an Arduino board?
    my answer: about half a project ago
