I'm a total newcomer to electronics, so I ordered LadyAda's Toolkit, the Arduino starter pack, and I also got a miniPOV from makershed. I'm very happy to say that I successfully put the kit together and it works perfectly! Thanks for the very clear instructions, they made me feel like a pro. I had to order the serial to usb converter, as I'd neglected to, and added a couple of Arduino shields while I was at it. I'm hooked!, I'm going to get started on the Arduino tutorials now. Thanks for great products, tutorials and forums. I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of questions along the way as I learn. I just wanted to stop in and say hi to everyone.
