I am doing the usual trying to test a widget, with not enough stuff, too find faults, which there isn't time to fix. Well one of the new widgets has an IP port that needs to be tested. Not wanting to get my finger nails torn out by the Net Admins, I am trying to come up with a means that will save my finger nail beds.

I admit I was more a MicroChip fan more than Atmel, I supposed it comes from being more familar with uChip tool chain,

... 'the hen's teeth' as an expression for something that does not exist. The irony of this is that one idea to 'revive' a theropod dinosaur by reactivating older inactive genes in a still existing species.
