Connections, Pins, Plugs, Adapters, Breakouts, Etc.

It may sounds strange to say, but this is a vast and a vastly complex subject. The 'this' referred to does not even have a consistent, coherent name ( IMHO ). Connections and all that kind of stuff ...

Picky little 'this' connector issues can be a more critical success factor than the actual underlying electronic technology. See ArduinoProMini and ArduinoTeensy for concrete instances.

... As a 'hack' for programming a Mini Pro I push 6-way pin header into the end and then apply pressure with my fingers to slant the connector and keep it in contact with the thru-holes. Fortunately the impedance of my fingers isn't too low to disrupt the programming process(!) ...

These pins are spring loaded and $0.70 http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/38286.pdf

USB

A strong preference for USB, except maybe ... FTDI ?

Big Issue: Need for very short custom cables, less than 4", impossible to find at any price, probably must make myself.
