Dale, DLC,
Thanks for the input.  Have to agree with you on the price.  The next closest board I was looking at was I think around $140.  I found the Arduino board on the maker site for I think $36!  Even if it was difficult it's still worth buyin and tryin.

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this board/project and can comment on its usefulness/ease of use?> > > > Thanks> > -Dodd> > http://robododd.blogspot.com/> > > > _________________________________________________________________> > Get more done, have more fun, and stay more connected with Windows Mobile®. > > http://clk.atdmt.com/MRT/go/119642556/direct/01/> > > > > > ------------------------------------------------------------------------> > > > _______________________________________________> > DPRGlist mailing list> > DPRGlist at dprg.org> > http://list.dprg.org/mailman/listinfo/dprglist
