Here's a *real* simple circuit for lighting a matrix of LEDs

Here's a related link: the rationale behind not using LED resistors.

(interesting 'cause it doesn't use a USB-RS232 converter)
(useful for making an even more minimal arduino?) 
Or... you can connect to your host via bluetooth!

(another way to do the RF-remote accelerometer?)
