LCD Finally

After days of troubleshooting, resoldering, re-coding and such I was finally able to get my LCD to work with the Arduino. I had a few choice words for the LCD right before I took this picture.

I guess the important thing is that I got it to work finally. I found a data sheet on my off brand cheap LCD. Turns out I had the pins reversed so all the hookups were backwards. Once I fixed that boom it worked first time. Amazing. I had spent time resoldering my header pins to the LCD because this was my second solder job. Oh well. It finally works.

If anyone else bought the QC2004 LCD off Amazon see here for the data sheet:

Added a temp sensor and sent the output to LCD with a few more lines of code.
