that`s a very nice review on everything thanks, but i did all what is in there most of that is just common sense
thanks dude, but sometimes you need at least to have your screen on to troubleshooting some of the component
of the device that you are building and that`s exactly what i don`t have and what i do have i think is the worse escenary that you can get a nightmare! where you have no power at all to do a move. thanks in advance for you
help.
