any danger from using 2 power sources at same time?
for some reason i have an issue with lacking power to boot one of my boards. if i use the micro usb power source i don't have enough power to complete a boot, after it reaches a point the boot sequence loops. if i use a power supply through the euler pins, same situation, boot loop after a certain point in the sequence. however, if i use a power source through both the micro usb & euler pins at same time the boot is always successful. after boot i can disconnect one or the other and the board runs fine. i have been doing this for about 3 weeks now without any obvious damage. but i thought i'd mention it to the group and see what feedback i get. i'm mostly interested in if i will eventually burn up the board someway but i'd also like thoughts on just why this is working thanks.
