The homebrew ISP is burning bootloaders for Shrimps

Homebrew ZIF ISP
This morning I finished off the homebrew In System Programmer (ISP) that I started yesterday.

It's now happily burning bootloaders onto the chips I'll be handing out on Monday's SPA session.

I'm relieved to find that the installed code includes a blink sketch. That means that the Shrimp-builders will see that their new creations are working as soon as they power them on.

I need to prepare 20 chips for the session, plus a couple of spares just in case. At this rate I'll be done by teatime.
