Ah I keep hearing good things about that board. Right now I use the parallax basic stamp as that was what my high school taught me to use. But I may try that board for college in the fall

i highly recommend it.  it's just an all around great board, decent number of IO, and plenty fast.  not to mention the amount of documentation/support there is for it
