I've started playing with Arduino, I've always been fascinated with it. AND having been slowly teaching myself Python, why not try and make the two talk to each other? Tonight (10/15/11) I found success! Now, it's nothing spectacular. A simple LED on my breadboard, two Python scripts (one passes '0', the other passes '1'), based on the value sent via serial, an LED will light. None the less, these links below proved VERY valuable. LOTS to learn, but well on my way!
