nodemcu_v3/arduino_ide_flash_issues: changed a couple mentions of ESP8266 to ESP-12E because the latter is the specific module in use, while the former is the actual micr0chip on there

-Now, since you're dealing with serial connections there's no point in using USB 3.0 for its improved speed to begin with, as such many converters will still be v2.0 or maybe even v1.1. Even if your p00ter supports USB 3.0, it will simply fall back to the older protocol. Meaning it only draws __at most__ 500 mA, and even then I doubt a serial device presents itself as high-power, leaving you with only __100 mA for both the FTDI and NodeMCU__. The ESP8266 chip itself uses about __80 mA__ on average when operating, and I assume it peaks higher than that when you're trying to flash shit. If you're powering the board this way and you try to flash a sketch, you'll know the power is insufficient if it does start to flash but suddenly terminates with a `Timed out waiting for packet header/content` error.

 __If I use a 1A wall plug to USB converter thingy to power the b0ard__, disconnect the wire between `VCC` and `VIN` and plug the converter directly into muh p00ter, shit's all fine and dandy. [[=[=[=[=[==[
