[sdiy] converting a 10v p to p to a 0-5 volt signal

i did exactly this for my Arduino module. it bidirectionally 
interfaces a +/-5v signal to the micro's 0-5v range.

turned out to be pretty easy - on the way in, chop the signal in 
half, and bias with +2.5v. then reinvert. on the way out, do the 
opposite. 1 dual opamp each way.

lmk if you want the details.

(i should also thank Tom Wiltshire here for his help getting me off 
the ground with this stuff.)
