    I never understood the point of this particular board. It'd make a lot more sense if they made it more like the arduino mega, where it'd be more cost effective and actually take advantage of the hardware. I'd really like to know how many arduino uno users who have had issues with the ATMega328 being too limiting. I'm sure there have been a few Arduino Mega users who could've used something better than the ATMega2560. The Leonardo is basically what the Gallileo should have been, in terms of being a microcontroller anyway.

    Hmmm...

    All-in-one floppy-organ-via-Ethernet solution? Thus, all one would have to do is make a virtual MIDI driver to send it over Ethernet......





    Seriously, I sometimes wonder myself whers I get these crazy thoughts.

    I bought some Quark zero-fat 'cheese' once. I'd already been eating low-fat cottage cheese, so I figured it wouldn't be too bad. Bought some crispbreads, bit of dried chive, sorted.

    My. God. Quark isn't cheese. It's yoghurt. Ended up chucking most of the (thankfully small) pot. Bleugh.
