That's the spirit! I do very much the same when trouble shooting.... turn stones, poke it with a stick, etc. Besides, it's a great programming exercise.

Yes, the CPU is running says the logic analyzer, and signals seem present. A friend is also building the exact same kit, so when that is complete and we can rule out more of my construction errors. In the meantime I might just try writing some code to try and generate data on the fly - i.e. a loop that does nothing but send out a ‘U’ would be very useful! I love puzzles like this.
