Owen, I to am the unfortionate owner of this pos board.  Mine came with 
a pinout of the all the different headers.  So I made one myself.  But, 
I did have a back and forth war with aopen tech support regarding the 
nessicary dongle for it.  They don't make it themselves, but eventually 
pointed me to this site where you can buy one for $6.


If you want me to snap a pic of the pinout on my sheet, let me know.
