Bye bye, Arduino.

I was working with my Arduino last night and all of a sudden it stopped working. I kept getting this error

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp = 0xfc

Jessica says that I probably need a new chip, probably got zapped. Apparently super sensitive to static electricity and during this time of year, I’m like a walking zapper. I’ll need another Arduino, maybe try to fix this one and have  a spare.


avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp = 0xfc

I have encountered these errors and few times. In this case, the wiring caused the arduino not to work. Once everything was unplugged, the Arduino worked and once everything was plugged back in, it worked.


I need to think up a lose scenario.

Scan, what will entice the participant to scan the organ?? Why are they so invested, what is the appeal? Are there prizes? Is it for charity? Have to figure out the juxtaposition. Then focus on the display.

I need to figure out my installations quirky, oddity, that gives the creeps.

Innocent, capitalistic feeling. Humanity vs. selling humanity.

For my proof of concept I need to think of a sign and my display. Need to get my scanning function working.

Wonder when I’ll be getting my printer from Adafruit. It’s been a few weeks since I ordered it.
