Hello Don.

 I am just working on a FAX order to send you.  Not sure whether to
order a couple of ATMEL kits into the bargain.

 I haven't read the appnotes yet to know exactly how the business of
using two DT104 boards to program the chips works, but gather it relates
to serial programming and is an alternative to using J5 connected to the
parallel port of a PC.  I gather also that you could use a PIC board to
do the programming!

 My main conundrum is if I get one (or even two) DT104 boards, which
chip do I go for?  It's really just for fun rather than a specific
application.  Maybe that describes just about how far you have got with
them too!

 Am I to gather that all four chips you offer will program with the
same programmer system (either another DT104 or parallel port cable)?  I
gather the 90S1200 is its own machine and the 89C2051 thinks it's an
8051 of sorts.  What then are the 89C51 and 52?  OK, obviously they too
think they're standard 8051/8052 devices.  Your prices on them are all
so close one might just tend to go for the biggest!

 What on earth is an AVR, particularly compared to a non-AVR?  Hmmm.
OK, so I have just looked more closely at the ATMEL site and it appears
this refers to a "90 series" device, so only the 90S1200 qualifies so
far.  Does this mean then that the 90S1200 runs at the reputed one cycle
per clock and the others don't; are much slower?

 Must say it's *lovely* to have a decent pentium running and a 33.4
modem (it was half the price of a 56K Flex and I *don't* trust them on
the basis of all I've heard!).  I was reluctant to browse or download
too seriously for some time, but now have shelled out $30 for a month's
ISP subscription; 4 hours per day and up to 100Mbyte for the month.

 It's all a bit confusing yet; maybe I'll pass on those things for now!
Oh dear, I suspect I am rambling.  Time for bed.  See what you can make
of all this by all means, and I hope to get the order off tomorrow so
maybe I'll have the stuff ready for the other guys next week.

 Cheers,
       Paul B.
P.S.: Your link to me noted.  I'll have to do some (lots!) more work on
my site!

Sorry folks, yes it was meant for me. I read the header several times
just to make sure I wasn't ready for bed as well. Private email coming
now Paul.
