Hi there, A followup to this mail from a couple months ago. I started with your USBtinyISP design and ended up with this. It’s not recognizably based on your circuit anymore, and it has a few more big features (dual power supply, JTAG programming, USB-TTL serial, rescue clock). But a little bit of the USBtiny’s soul is still
there! You can follow along with the development on my blog: http://www.sowbug.com/
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

[Disclosure: I laid out that board.]
Although this is a really capable little programmer, my favorite feature is a really low-tech one: The silkscreen on the back, with the map of the six pin ISP header. For some reason, I always end up needing to know the pinout at an inopportune moment, and that saves me a trip back to my computer.
