(Blowing My) Fuses
I just had a devil of a time getting the AVR to work on the combined olduino/shield adapter board. It’s different from what I’ve done before because I was using the internal oscillator instead of a resonator but I still wanted to use the bootloader (because I was too lazy to plumb in an ICSP header).
I thought I understood avr programming and fuses and bootloaders and such but i just could *not* put it together and have it work. I finally came across an arduino posting where somebody had done exactly what I needed and I copied it. Still no idea what was wrong with mine – it looks identical! http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard
Anyway, thanks to the author.
