I don't have any experience with Arduino's (surely a renegade band of mexican bandidos ? Or very tough wino's ?....probably loses something in translation , as they say !)
However....... having just looked at a few Arduino resources it seems like they use a regular Atmel microcontroller and if that is the case then you definately shouldn't need to do any level translation of the serial data.
In short, I haven't written anything for the Arduino. I do have hopes of writing code for a very competent and flexible controller using a PIC though.
Having just had a PC crash which wiped off all my work since February I have a few other things to occupy my time for now. (John and Andrew you have the only working versions of IV-17 smartsockets in the world !)
If you'll excuse me I'm just going to read up about backing up on windows XP pro (thanks to nothing more than a slightly badly fitting power plug on a hard disk !)
