Related to my "Library" post.  http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=76666.0

This is the level of tutorial and hand-holding at which I'm trying to hint. It's topical as I think many of us would love to have an oscillating series of LEDs on our gear (bracers, weapons, etc.) and sometimes wasting an entire Arduino on a "simple" flashing light show seems a waste of a perfectly good Arduino Uno  :P .
