Bangs. Head. On. Desk.

Given that there was already a perfectly good program on the micro-controller for swinging a leg pair, I tried one-by-one wiring up the signal line for each servo in the hopes of validating that all the wiring was good, and… twitching. The damned servos are twitching.

Maybe the way I ran the wires is causing interference? Maybe it’s a load issue? Maybe the servos are busted or the micro-controller board has started having issues? Various Internet posts say to try putting a resistor in series with the servo, or maybe wrapping its cabling around a torus…

Argh! This is going to be a bit of debugging…
