Cool! Hope you were able to stop by our balloon, floating up and down in front of the Civil War stuff. Plenty of Sparkfun stuff danging off, ready to cross the Atlantic.

I agree completely. The Arduino is a neat toy, but it’s not the be-all and end-all. It’s nice to have the programmer built in, but for $15 you can get a nice programming board with the 6-pin ISP header built in: http://evilmadscience.com/tinykitlist/74-atmegaxx8
Another $20 gets you a USB programmer. Now you’ve got a programming setup that’s easier to use, cheaper (especially after a few microcontrollers!), and lets you use the full feature set of the micro, completely unfettered.
