MPGuino fail (UPDATE: WIN!)

I'm pretty much just going to complain right now,

So, I was driving to the airport to pick up my friend from japan, and while averaging 75 mpg (pretty great for the highway, eh) I stalled the car at a toll booth, and the mpguino stopping displaying. I tried fiddling with it, but as I did and it shorted out, i was also shorting out the injector control and killing the car.

So, it's not in use, which is sad. It's also going to take some work to fix!

Anyway, do wiring right the first time!

MPGuino win!

I pushed around some of the wiring and reuploaded the (old) software, and even though I lost my data it seems to be working fine. I should really download the new stuff soon,

I installed 10k resistors where I connected the mpguino wires to prevent this. I have not tested if it actually helps.
