I called UPS told them that i would not pay because i purchased $50 worth of items and was charged $85 worth of shipping,...

I've been using AVR studio 5 (beta 1 and 2) with great success. It has crashed on me once or twice, but that could just be my laptop, since I'm using a 6 year old laptop that hasn't been formated in 4 years. Anyways, I did write a tutorial on how to use AVR studios with the Arduino. Hope this helps:...

Thank you In order to get the camera to capture I had to shine an extra light source, on the display, in real life the LED's cause a really nice lighting effect on the edge of the fog, and cause shadows of the ships to be cast on the glass that we used as the water. It really is a great use of space...

The short answer: ~(1 << 2) = ~00000100 = 11111011 but ( 0 << 2) will create 00000000 if you AND (&) by a 0 you will get a 0, so (0<<bit) will set the register to all 0's. I have some tutorials about the subject on my site that shows the math in details.
