Arduino blink sketch + shift register

I have a dead Arduino. It works, but I fried the FTDI chip, so I can’t upload new sketches. When I fried it, it had blink on it <.<.

I have discovered something cool, though. If you wire up a 74HC595 shift register the usual way, and connect data to pin 13, you get a cool ‘chase effect’. Experiment with other pins to see what cool stuff you can do.
