Update on the ShrimpingIt workshop

Michael Margolis and I have been sourcing the cheapest components from various suppliers before ordering the kits for the ShrimpingIt/Arduino clone workshop. We are now collaborating with Cefn Hoile, the creator of ShrimpingIt, who's buying components in bulk to get a better price on the USB module, which should arrive mid or end of March. More info coming soon.

Interesting links

From the Arduino forum, Pighixxx has created several pinout diagrams for the Arduino UNO and others. These diagrams provide a clear picture about how to use each pin of the board and can be used as real “cheatsheets” for your own DIY projects.
