Its Alive!!!

Well, part of it at least.  Today I soldered up one of the new remote LCD boards and powered it on:

When completed the LCD board flips over and mounts on the back under the LCD; it is exactly the same size.  But here I have it bridged using a proto-board, with the Service and ICSP ports connected and supplying +5v.

When I get in the revised controller boards will proof out the CAT-5 cable buffers as well.

BTW, the message "We are Alive!!!" is what the Arduino sketch for this remote LCD / keyboard module displays upon power up.  In use it would very quickly be overwritten by the start-up messages from the controller.  But at least this gives a quick way to check things are working locally.
