well as at 19.2?" "Bob, in addition to fixing all of Florida's voting
machines, could you drain the everglades as well?" In the middle of the
"drain the swamp" stage, I have to redo everything into ASM in order to
save space and variables. This happened so many times, that I no longer
bother with C or Pascal. But I have a BIG library of ASM routines that have
been ruggedly tested, so I just pick what I need from it.
Then, when the client calls, it is already in assembler and the client can
afford to pay for my changes. See?
Yes, I usually use external caps with 32.7K.

Seriously, if you put your PIC into an endless loop, doing something
repetitively, the errors will eventually show up, even on the worst
breadboard you have.

Darn! I was ready to saddle up for LV, borrowed $20 from the wife.

Most wives love to be needed. Ask her anyway.
Well, I remember changing vacuum tubes, so I was here when J.C. was just a
