Excitedly received and unwrapped my experimentation kit, starting to tinker.
Does anyone know if the fuses are properly set when the uno is shipped? I've opted to use command-line interface rather than the IDE, and after reading all the cautions about bricking your chip, would rather not type anything potentially dangerous (like writing fuses) into avrdude until I understand better what I'm doing.
For what it's worth, the "blinky light" sketch works fine. If the fuses were misconfigured, I assume there would be some spectacular kind of failure mode?
