Digistumped?

Preamble

Following on from A tiny one and Using an ATtiny development board, I figured that it was time to get the DigiStump/DigiSpark ATtiny85 board (that I had ordered over two months ago) to work, seeing as I had failed to get the ATtiny85 and the development board to work previously.

It is worth noting that I was using a newer version of the Arduino IDE (1.6.11) this time around. Last year I was using version 1.6.5. Continue reading The case of the broken Pro Micro (reprise)

Preamble

I was watching youtube tutorials, and saw this video.
Arduino Tutorial #14: Leonardo as Mouse

This immediately appealed to my mischievous side, and I ordered a 3.3 V Pro Micro.

However, I digress… That part of the story, the prologue, if you will, is covered more fully in USB Shenanigans. However, this blog, The case of the broken Pro Micro, will deal will repairing an apparently bricked Pro Micro, which resulted due to the shenanigans…
