Old geezers (such as yr obt srvt) still refer to 'em as "PC compatible" when we forget ourselves.
And today is the day when I received my kit of Arduino clone goodies. There it was, stuffed in the mailbox, waiting for me to drag my butt out of bed and get hep to the world around me.
This is gonna be fun. It's got all kinds of stuff in it, sensors and LEDs and a remote control and jumper wires and breadboards. I've got an e-mail in to the seller now to get the schematics and instructions, but who knows how long that'll take.
