  • Onboard usb! Or...I was. The micro usb connector snapped off the other night and ruined the traces. I'm definitely taking up Gordon's suggestion to use the kind with the 4 mounting pins on the next iteration.

    Usb worked surprisingly easily actually, with the ic, crystal and the connector soldered onto the board, it just worked when I plugged it in. I keep expecting the shift from 8-bit, through hole, uart microcontrollers to be fraught with difficulties, but as long as you connect the right parts to the right pins, everything seems to work pretty well.
