W/ Arduino, after you program it, can you then remove the IC and stick it into your project?
Sorry, I'm completely new to this whole arduino thing. I find it amazing but had this little question about it. I wouldn't want to program the thing and have to use the whole arduino for the things I make. I think the answers obvious but I've never heard or read anything anywhere about removing the microcontroller from the Arduino board and putting it onto your own board to use. Isn't this the point?
