I wound up starting completely over. I re-installed Arduino, continued having bad luck with Jarduino, but I was able to get another aquarium controller sketch called Stilo to work. Except after loading the first screen it just flashes and reloads every second. I think this is because I don't have the RTC installed yet. I will do that today.
flc, thats a good idea to check out dorkbot. They have a meeting tonight, I just might have to stop by.
