'w00h00! Success!'

To everyone:

  Well, whenever I had the problems with ITU Tech before Christmas, I
decided to revoke that order and then place an order to Digi-Key for one of
the Microchip Picstart Plus development systems.

  I gotta say that I'm happy with both the programmer, and with the
service provided by Digi-key. Digi-Key got it here before Christmas, and
Microchip made a wonderful little programmer.

  Last night I got my first program burnt into it and running. It was
example 16 in Myke Predko's book. (Polling An Input Bit). It worked on the
first compile and burn! So now I have a PIC16F84 that blinks a light when I
push a button. Hey, it doesnt sound like much, but it brought a smile to my
face. :)

  Anyways, talk to you all later. Everyone have a good New Years.

Very good! You are on your way. I snivelled around for a while,
intending to
pick a programmer to build, then just bought the Picstart Plus from
Digikey.

I wanted to run stepper moters, so I started with flashing an LED too.
Nothing gets me motivated like seeing my code run!

And so far, my only application for work has been to flash LED's!

The whole world thinks that microcontrollers are unexciting, but they
are
wrong, aren't they?

Well done me lad,
making a LED blink (and understanding how) is a milestone in u-controller
programming.
Most people are scared of u-controllers but you have dived in and made
probably the biggest step there is.

Keep going and well done !!.

Oh, and happy new year.
