The story so far. I ordered and built a Freeduino board, made by Seeedstudio, from Robotshop. The board went together OK following the NKC Electronics instructions but the Atmega 168 chip was faulty. I called Robotshop and they sent me over a new Atmega 328 chip. That chip doesn't work either. In the mean time I ordered a 328 chip from Seeedstudio. I'm still waiting for that one. The Arduino community is full of neat projects. I'd like to build the pong game using a 9 x9 LED array.
