That monthly sacred day known as Pay Day has arrived.

I've ordered a few different types of ESP8266 based boards for my various projects:

The board I have ordered is nice and slim, and only has the serial port pins (tx/rx/5v/gnd) broken out. This is perfect for this as I can simply add a rightangled female header and plug this board in to keep a really low profile under the board. I've always planned on connecting the serial pins up to TX1/RX1 on the mega so there's no need for any other headers.

Good times!
