LiquidCrystal is starting up properly, at last!
As any arduino developer that worked with LCD displays would now the LCD initialization is a pain in the ass.
The LiquidCrystal library that came with the arduino files until arduino-16 did not propperly initialize all liquid crystal displays.
The supplied LiquidCrystal library with arduino-17 which solved those issues did not work for us (I’ll leave the technical details out, just believe me on that).
This post is just to say thanks. Kudos. I owe you one and all that.
Yeah, that FLOSS thing is quite great.
