Made an Arduino

Got a few Atmega328P ICs with the Arduino bootloader already installed and wired this guy up with a few passive components I got from Mouser. I'm programming it by removing the microcontroller and swapping it into my actual Arduino Uno, then back. (I'm too cheap to buy individual serial adapters for each build.)

This guy's going to be part of a remote controlled electrical outlet activator so I can sit on my lazy ass while flipping on/off stuff across the room.

It'll have as an input an infrared receiver and will send high/low signals to a solid state relay array based on the decoded signals match up to. Once I finish that I'll load the sexy details.
