I'm trying to combine some Energia libraries for the ADS1118 ADC and the SPI serial LCD included on the ADS1118 Booster Pack. Using simple digitalWrite() calls, I'm able to write to the LCD, but I'm trying to switch to using the Energia SPI library. The documentation for SPI.begin() says I can set a slave select pin; however, the compiler rejects a call to SPI.begin(LCD_CS) because there is no SPI.begin(int slaveSelectPin) defined. With the following code, the default pin 2 slave select appears to be used, because it happens to be connected to the buzzer on the ADS1118 Booster Pack, an

It looks like a possible short could occur between these two points. For now, I've stuck a business card in between to keep them from touching. Do the Booster Pack design guidelines include any bottom-side exclusion areas for downward-extending pins?
