Well, I am somewhat proud of myself for finally reading and working thru the MPLAB IDE Quick Start for version 8.80.00. Hey, it has only been a year! Where did the time go? Recently placed order for a couple of samples from Microchip to possibly build The 'One Chip Spinning RGB POV Display' with conversion software. And purchased some PIC chips from Tayda. Wish me luck in continuing to get up to speed with the PICKit 2 programmer. I am wondering how long it will be before I feel the need to buy the hardware debugging module.
