Prestatyn - getting the code working

A new controller board, this time, something that responds to a single button press to change configurations, and sends out a serial SPI stream that will tell a device how to reconfigure itself.

Simple stuff really. or should i say.. "Apparently"

Keith thought the board should be named after a welsh city -- "Prestatyn" ... because it sounded like "press that in".

I'll add a picture of the board that was developed later on this evening. My MSP430 code was a little poor, leaving me with stack overflows and a board that would stop working with the debugger. What a pain :(

one of the registers USIIFG was permanently set, and needed resetting. A small code change set this appropriately, and somehow, the board now works :)

more details to come.
