Tragedy struck

On my way to get some more small pieces and plugs for the testing of the board something awful happened.  I left RAMPS on my car roof and drove almost a kilometer before it finally came off with a screech and a slap.  Onto the road.

I only realized what it was a couple minutes later…  I dreaded what I would find.  My precious RAMPS probably run over by a Gautrain Bus.

When I got there it was lying on the line between the two lanes – and still intact save a few bent pins, a broken pololu header and a destroyed 11A resetable fuse.

Repairing the damage now.  It is very fortunate that I decided to leave the Arduino Mega and the Pololu drivers at home!
