My goodness! That's quite a bibliography!

Does that mean it's functioning already?

  Are you sure? yes | no

I just wanted all the links for these two boards finally in one
place. Also the articles were hard to find in order. Just the SPI is
working now! :) https://hackaday.io/project/2872-driverless-mouse-and-keyboard-sharing/log/20016-atmel-atmel-atmega328p
