Take Your PIC

Having a couple of days off work to make a long weekend.
Timed it right too, a new toy dropped through the letter box on Wednesday.

Been playing with microcontrollers for a while now. I use Matrix Multimedia Flowcode Software, and their hardware.
But just bought the Microchip PicKit2 to play with.
1. Its Cheap £40.00 complete with usb cable and project board
2. Its got in circuit programming capability & a built in logic analyser and UART (Missing from pickit3)

So far Im very impressed,the 3 channel logic analyser is great for a simple bit of lit like this.
