Hello Nick,

Thanks for an informative website. I've seen many recommendations pointing this way.

Please excuse me, as I am fairly new to the Arduino platform. I recently purchased a Leonardo clone and a few blank Attiny85s as well as a Atmega328p-pu with Arduino bootloader. I intended to program these chips for use in a few projects, but I'm running into trouble using the Leonardo as an ISP.

I can't seem to get your board detector nor board programmer sketch to work. Using both sketches (as well as the Arduino as ISP sketch) and both chips, I've run into this error every time:

avrdude done. Thank you

I know its a generic error, but I'm wondering if it's something on the software side, as I've checked the wiring from the ICSP header multiple times. I know your articles were written with the UNO in mind, but I'm wondering if there's an alternate solution because from my Google searches, I've seen a few success stories from people using your sketches.
