    The "L" LED on the board? That was lesson 1 :)!
    Getting the IDE up and running and connected to the board was easy for me - I've done that with other hardware before - and the software features are similar to other environments.
    Won't have much time to play with this until the weekend, but I can identify all the parts of the board, know how to to read the color bands on a resistor, know why you use a resistor (so you don't blow sh*t up), now learning how to read electronics schematics. .Good stuff!

    Dont have a large flash unit to take a large family portrait? Want to make a cheap home made flash bulb?

    Take a cheap 110 2 line extension cord, cut off the female end and separate the wires 10” or so and strip off the very end of the insulation back 1/2 inch on each wire. Then solder a clip lead to each copper bare wire. Buy some steel wool and tear off a small 3” section piece and place a clip lead on each end. Be careful not to direct short the clip leads so leave them at least 2” apart. Gather your friends around safely 10 ft away in a non flammable area like in your empty cement backyard. Get out your smartphone cameras ready and direct everyone to say “cheese”. Carefully plug it it and watch the giant flash, then quickly remove the plug.

    Disclaimer, this is only a joke. For amusement only and not intended for instructions or use or actual demonstration. We used to do this is electronics class, annoying the excellent patient shop teacher.

    Remains to be seen if I have any knack or gift for it, since I’m a total noob. But so far, so good.

    Hah! Bad, bad kids :). I never had shop class - back in ancient times boys got shop class, girls had to take boring “Home Economics.” I don’t know if shop was even an option for us if we had requested it. Times change!

    There probably a youtube video on how to do it!

    When I was in high school, took a few shop courses and a course called "bachelor studies", was taught how to sew a button on, make pizza from scratch, make a shop list..things my mom wouldn't teach me cause it was a "girl thing"..lol

    I cant take it any longer!!!

    I know this breaks multiple thread rules, but I cant be silent anymore.

    I cant believe that Kardashian girl would name her kid the same name as the porn woman currently in the news.

    And no, changing the Y to an I doesn't fix it.

    Have flu.
    Wife pulled the "don't you love me" card to make me go to doctor yesterday afternoon.
    Taking medication.

    Slowly transitioning to vegetarianism.
    Sacrifices to be made to survive.
