For ICSP maybe you should take a look at that bionic version
of Apple's Firewire. Very simple plug-in system. Er, what's it
called again ? "Fire-cock" was it ?

Sounds very painful.   [*cringe*]
But in that case, I'd need to run long wires up to my
heart.  I need to research the effects of EMI on the
stomach.  Perhaps it would boost metabolism?  Hmmm...
weight loss from a PIC...???

Another option would be to transfer the ICSP signals
via some other, non-intrusive method.  Picture this --
stick head in (modified) microwave, and hit the
"Download hex file" button.  :-)

Cheers,
-Neil,

But a power fail occures in the middle of upgrading the firmware - so the PIC just sit's with no firmware loaded while your on the floor clutching your chest.

But he has a backup van de Graf (sp! Harnivore) to zap him back into life
if such a thing happens. It is triggered by the little captain's elbow on
the poop castle of the sailing ship model, which is tethered by the rubber
bung that is kept taut and thus the boat away from the shore of the small
water-filled tub, by a mains-powered running fan.

PS: My slanted kicks on Harnivore are related to vanishing email. I am
well aware of its usefulness as an early warning tool. I DO NOT want to
be aware of its use as a censorship device. Just to make a thing clear.

Think some one was going to ask "Why were you
flying in a C170 in bad weather and where were
you?"

And the answer would involve him in the military
flying over some far off country risking his life
doing what the USA asked him to do.
