  • I swear, the radioactive atom is right here, just don't move, my soldering iron will take care of it.

  • Bought the cable, and I have been trying to get it to work with an "arduino" I made (I whipped up an ATMega328p with headers, reset switch, and 5v regulator), and I conected GND to GND, VCC to VCC, RXD on cable to TXD on ATMega, and then TXD on cable to RXD on ATMega, and finally RTS to reset, but when I try uploading, I see that it resets because my blink program starts again, but then in the Arduino IDE it fails with

    avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

    Any ideas?

  • This might sound a bit silly, but does a resistor work the same way if you have it hooked up to ground? I've always done +V -Resistor-LED- V- not V+ -LED-Resistor- V-

No public wish lists :(
