der blinkin lights

microcomtroller up and running (although you can’t see the led flashing)

it is helpful to remember that one’s programmer has a jumper for device vs bus powered before one lets out all the magic smoke. (no pic of the smoke I was letting out).

update 2009-02-17 – it turns out that i had let the smoke out w/o realizing it. since the programmer was attached it was enough to drive the microcontroller etc on the 3.3v rail. however, the ‘back current’ through the power converter definitely upset it. good thing i have a way to test until i get around to making another digikey order.
