Hey Jawa Jaka,
I’ll try to address at least one of the issues you are having. The way Arduino works, and therefore the BadgerStick since it’s an Arduino device, you can’t see whatever code is already pre-loaded on the device. What you can do, is save you codes on your codebender account, and keep your various codes in your list of projects.
This way, you’ll have a project with your exploding Death Star, another one for scrolling, etc, and you can work on a new project, while keeping your old codes safe
P.S. I’m the founder of codebender

Hey Steve123, Vasilis from codebender here.
The whole pain in the 32U4 comes from mainly the way it’s programmed, which is a hack upon a hack upon a hack, and the fact that the software is responsible for resetting the board (and many other minor details, but let’s not get into that). And the problem only gets worse because if programming doesn’t work, you need to understand this whole arcane process to understand why it doesn’t, so it makes people feel stupid, or it makes people to think it’s faulty hardware. Either way they give up
I’m a big fan of those Arduino Nano clones with the CH340G chip these days. Much more stable and straightforward. It’s easy to use on Windows, it even comes with Windows Update drivers so it arguably works easier than Arduino/FTDI. The drivers for OS X has signing issues but we (codebender) have fixed that, so if you use our driver installer it will work great. Linux is a bit worse cause you have to install their driver, and Chromebooks are a lost cause. But for the price, and for the majority of people, they absolutely rock!
And then there’s the Pro Mini, which is my all time favorite :)

This is Vasilis, the CEO of codebender. Thanks for the mention, bboyho! :)
I’d like to mention that, instead of simply adding the driver, we really do suggest going through our Getting Started Walkthrough altogether, which makes sure everything is properly set up on your computer in order to use Arduino boards (and ISP Programmers). Here’s the link: https://codebender.cc/static/walkthrough/page/1
And also, you can use the ISP programmer to program any Arduino straight from your browser (Chrome or Firefox), and even burn a new bootloader, from this page: https://codebender.cc/static/burn_bootloader
Oh, and feel free to add this in the tutorial ;)

Hey there, this is Vasilis, the founder of codebender. Can you try cloning the code on codebender and compiling it? It would help to see if there are any issues

Greetings from your friends in Greece! It would be very interesting to hear about the story behind Marcus' transition from Geek Ammo to SparkFun. Seems like a great “behind the scenes” story

long-forgoten question, but i’ll still reply. they sound amazing! People can actually hear the sound caused my my skull’s vibrations

it’s enough, but you have to either connect it to the 5v pin, or make a connector that will go to the USB port
