  • Just FYI, if you wire the encoder backwards (PIN 1 where PIN 2 should go and vise versa), your Arduino sketch will fail on upload saying: "avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding."

    It's a poor error message - since it doesn't point you at ALL to the actual problem.

No public wish lists :(
