LCD Madness!

Last night I received a package from so today I took off work early to play with my new toy.

I cannibalized an old floppy drive ribbon cable to build a custom cable to hook the LCD up to my arduino. I then downloaded Adafruit's improved lcd library for arduino and now I can output 32 characters worth of data from my arduino.

I'm planning a project that will need the lcd so stay tuned....
