'Life is great! So are PICs!!'
|Well, just to thank you all for your help! I now have a board that talks
to a PC through two I/O mapped FIFOs. Works great!
For all you people trying to build your first app, well, I have to tell
that I never found nothing as easy as the PIC. Really! I just took a
breadboard, a PIC16c64, a 20MHz crystal and two 33pf ceramyc capacitors.
Programmed the PIC with a nice TMR1/CCP1 based routine, and voila'! A
nice yellow Led blinking! 8)
I had to laugh at the assembly, because it looked really ugly, with all
the wires in the air!
It didn't work first time, but that was before I programmed the Port A
to Output! 8)
PICs are great!

That's what we are here for. Most of us remember being Newbies on
PICs because it was last year!

I told my daughter that I was going to bring home one of my
prototypes, a breadmaking machine. She looked glum. I asked her why,
and she said "I don't want the one with all the wires hanging, I want
a REAL one!"

I propose a Poll: How many tries does it take to get a prototype
working? My usual number is at least three, and often it's more like
