Speeding up the Sanguino reset time

I decided to use a Sanguino for my next project and I noticed that every time I reset it with the pushbutton, it would take around 10 seconds to start the program. I thought this was absurd since the regular Arduino doesn’t take that long. I decided to dive into the bootloader firmware and find out the problem. The Sanguino version I’m dealing with is v1.4 r1.

Repurposed tv-b-gone to turn off benq projector

At church, we have a projector that is close to the ceiling and far away from the audio/video booth. The remote control that came with the projector does not have a very far range. I have to get out of the booth and walk close to the back row and keep moving the remote until I get the projector to turn off or on. It wasn’t only annoying for me, but I’m sure it was distracting for the church members.
