Installation Notes: 

WinAVR or Mac CrossPack or Linux AVR-Toolchain needs to be installed on your system. You need a compatible embedded device similar to the Adafruit Microtouch. Use avrdude with the default bootloader over USB or use a 3.3v ISP device like the usbtinyisp. Unjumper the USBTinyISP so you don't accidentally damage the 3.3v resistive touch screen. You'll need to run the project make file. make, make program.
