    Fix a Fried Arduino Mega

    Thanks for the insight, I didn't have a surface mount regulator, so I used a standard 7805 in it's place. Since I don't care about looks, this will do and it should be much more robust than the original. I am reading 5.07 and 3.28 volts without a load. I used some short leads and soldered the leads to the pads on the board. Be aware that the pin-outs are different between the 2 regulators. Still gets hot, so a heat sink is a must.
