I think I'm going mad, but I've now got a mate to test as well.
If I save any code on the pico, I then lose connectivity from the IDE.
The website says follow the troulbleshooting guide to reset - but the reset procedure is only for the original espruino. I then have to resort to flashing the pico to doing anything further with it...
Am I missing something ? - look forward to a response.
Many thanks in advance
