Upgrade to ARC Pro

Nice work!!! DJ did you get to update the 4800 baud rate for sendserial?
Louis, the 4800 is a firmware update and your request is added within the list. Firmware is different than an ARC update:)

The firmware is very complicated assembler machine code and is modified under strict development planning and testing. 10,000 lines of assembler:)
Right...gotcha! Sorry don't know what i was thinking:)
@louis, i know you're eager to try that mp3 player out. i'm eager to see it work:) i think we're about 2 weeks away from the next firmware:D hope you can hold out!
That's awesome...Wall-E is keeping me busy for two more weeks for sure:)
