So was there power going to the guino?

Actually, the previous night I cooked an atmega168 trying to set up a test fixture. The only way I knew it was the chip was to pop in a known good chip. I also tried to reset the chip by putting together a parallel ICSP and reloading the bootloader (old parallel cable, some resistors, and a bit of hard drive connector). Had to try several computers before finding one it worked with, and it did work with the good chip, but I couldn't get the bad chip to respond.

I have more chips en-route, now I don't need to get them pre-loaded with the bootloader anyway
