comment Why is serial EEPROM preferred over parallel EEPROM?
The real estate required to route the extra traces for a parallel package can be significant is some applications as well.

comment Why is it called General Purpose Processor
In the future, you may not want to accept the first answer so quickly. You might get a better answer given a little more patience.

comment What is a pulse width modulation for DC motors really?
@newbie, A PWM signal is typically used as an output from a microcontroller to the input of a transistor. Power for the DC motor is provided through the transistor. The duty cycle of the PWM varies to control the voltage on the output side of the transistor and thus, the speed of the DC motor.

comment Identify which face of a cube is up
I agree. A 3-axis accelerometer is the way to go. Just for reference, Atmel has some very affordable dev kit add-ons with accels, gyros, and magentometers (atmel.com/products/microcontrollers/avr/sensors_xplain.aspx). I have no affiliation with Atmel...just thought these were relatively affordable solutions relevant to the question.

+1 for suggesting DTR pin instead of TX.

comment Where are static variables stored?
The placement of a const variable is controlled by a non-standard keyword sometimes. Note that there is often a way to configure the linker to define where the const variables are stored. This, of course, varies with each tool chain.

Another +1 for removing all of the stuff unrelated to flashing the LED.
