Other than incorrectly waving your e-penis about what have you added? I know very well that Arduino's are usually based on the atmega from Atmel. Atmega's don't usually come with a FT232 soldered onto the back of them. The arduino reference is in relation to that fact that most of the fake FT232s people find will be on cheap arduino clones. Honestly if you're going to get it out and start waving it around like an expert at least make sure it's not embarrassingly small before doing so.
