So, it still hasn't been working. I'm not sure if I put this in the last log, but i'm ordering a new mega clone for a few reasons:
1 - The problem is consistent with both shields, so that's not it
2 - Having a few Megas around is never a bad thing. Especially if they're only like $10
That being said, i posted my error code in the arduino forum, here: https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=541305.0;topicseen. That guy seemed to think it was a faulty download of the arduino ide, which would make sense because i can't upload to anything. This, however, is a problem. My mac is a 2009, so it's almost gone, and pretty much the only thing i can use. I'll have to get down to the makerspace one of these tuesdays.
After I saw noodlefeet (http://noodlefeet.zoness.com/, #NoodleFeet's Gripping Toes) I realized that one of the biggest pains in my ass was just that - a pain in my ass. So I decided to upgrade it and make the hatred go both ways. I added googly eyes and am going to give it a voice. With the DFplayer (around a buck on ebay) and some sound clips featuring bender, i'll have it play a random clip at random intervals. Still haven't decided what a "non annoying interval" would be.
- "Kill all humans!"
- "Bite my shiny metal ass"
- "Nothing a Lawsuit won't cure"
- "Hello Peasants"
- "Bodies are for Hookers and Fat people"
- "Lets go get drunk!"
