Use Arduino code on a TI Launchpad MSP430
Is it possible to connect jumpers by removing the chip from the launchpad. Something similar to this. Kindly note that I am using MSP430 for the first time. Thanks

How to Negotiate at Garage Sales
LOL - I have a video on YouTube that has almost 600K viewers about electrical outlets. The electricians and wanna-bes come out in droves to criticize every move. This is a really well-done instructable, and the kind of nit-pickers that would say otherwise should probably find a different website.
I have tried copy/pasting instead of writing and I just don't like it. A quirky thing for me. Using a spreadsheet is superior though. At the end of the week my paper goes in the trash. The information in digital form could be useful. Like if you see an address that looks familiar, you can search back and see if you've been there recently. If you are like me, you have "pro garage sellers" who have a garage sale once every couple of months selling utter junk. Glad you got a little something out of it though. Thanks for the feedback.

I should have added that I'm using the servo to rotate a turret on an RC tank. I'm using a standard RC transmitter to control the servo. I would think it will work and I don't have to reprogram anything for my application.
I have watched this video and many others explaining this process. They all say use the 2.2k ohm resistor. I called my local electronics store and I asked if they had these resistors in stock. The sales person asked me what wattage I needed. So even though its easy to do this hack, if you don't have the correct resistors the servo can easily be damaged.Could you please let me know the wattage resistor I need?
Thanks skylerh4, I do account for the pin changes, my issue appears to be compiler bugs or the micro simply runs out of memory, all sketches that do NOT work properly on MSP430 DO WORK correctly on the more powerful Stellaris hence my suspicion that it's likely an issue of resources rather than compiler bugs. - BoyanB
interesting if you find out what the problem is please tell me, i would like to know - skylerh4
Make sure the pins match the board your using, the arduino examples are setup with arduino normal pins, you may need to change them to 1.2 or etc depending on what pin you are using
Will removing the potentiometer stop you from being able to return the motor to its original position after causing it to spin?
