Brendon Archibald's Psychoanalytical
(restarting countdown) Timer
Simple Bike Computer by Fred Maher
From the CHEAPIC tutorial:
bincnt.asm - Count in binary on 4
swcnt.asm - Count switch closures.
eggtimer.asm - Countdown timer,
displays minutes and 10's of seconds on LEDs
morsenbr.asm - Send numbers 0-9
out on piezo speaker
binclock.asm - A clock which displays
hours and minutes in BCD on LEDs at keypress
combo.asm - a combination lock which
remembers a selectable combination, even when power is removed
alphabet.asm - Sends ASCII characters
to the COM port of a PC for display
worktime.asm - Uses a LCD to display
a timer that can be started and stopped by pushbutton
shotmr0.asm - Display TMR0 on a
LCD atter counting pulses on RA4 for one second
therm.asm - Display temperature on
a LCD using a thermistor as the sensor

A small home controller based on PIC16F873A. With the appropriate sensors
the controller can monitor physical variables such as pressure, temperature,
light intensity etc, process the information and then use the result to control
up to three physical devices such as motors, heaters, lights or other appliances
around the home or office. You can program your appliances to operate
automatically in conjunction with your weekly and daily schedule, manualy
turn them on/off from your PC or use the controller as a process ON/OFF
controller to regulate some kind of physical variable to the desired value.
a message-triggered cooperative operating system designed to run in places
were a large vehicles can not run. Its implementation for PIC12F takes less
than 200 instructions and 20 data registers1. With addition of a timer driver,
it becomes a time-triggered RTOS. +

Hello, i have on my site a page dedicated to decode the sony infrared protocol
with a pic micro(and a lot of other protocols). I know many people are asking
for the code, well now i've published the code and make it availlable to
everyone. So if you will you can place a link to it. Next week i shall comment
the sourcecode in detail.
