Super basic: Does power from pins EvUSBasp exist all the time?

(FIXED!) This demo of using the USBasp shows an Arduino is on before it is flashed:

Is the Arduino getting powered by the USBasp?


WTF!?! MY PLUG on my new programmer HAS PIN 1 marked on the wrong end.


(This is a public service announcement.)

Yes, it is powered by the programmer.

For a moment I thought you’d recorded the video, then I played it and there was an Indian man talking and I thought “hrm, something’s not right here…”.
Sure enough, it’s a 3 year old video by Hacktronics India :P.
