Hey, nicely done kit!

I just moved and a lot of my gear and parts are still packed up in various boxes, so this made it easy for me to stop procrastinating and get my monitor on. I just ordered.

Have you identified any suitable enclosures yet? I know you give minimum mounting dims, but the devil is in the details and it will be a pain to try to get decent fitment with penetrations on 3 sides. If you've got part numbers for any specific ones that would be great.

I bet these are going to take of quickly! I may have to build a second one and this will be the one.

w00t! Ordered.

Can't wait to put it together. My soldering skills have come a long way since my first attempt at a kit walkman *mumble* years ago.

Yes.

Read the first two lines in that screencap (the first two comment lines in the code), identifies your problem precicely. You need v. 0011 of the Arduino software.

like lyd and the code says, you gotta use arduino version 0011.

But this thread is a mishmash of building iduino based guinos and watching the kit evolve

Yeah, I realized that (also that I generally sounded like a jerk) and went back for an edit.

On mine I usually have to unplug the iDuino from the rest of it to load the software. Not sure why, I guess it's just the way I have to do things... it kind of makes the hole I cut in the side of my enclosure useless, but I guess I will live with it. I haven't tried loading the v0.74 code, but I can send you the v0.73 code or v0.72 code if you would like, since I have used both of those without a problem.
