OpenPic.com is now up and running.. I have a mailing list setup (no
subscribers on it yet)
This site is going to be for the support and development of various
projects w/ an opensource attitude.
I haven't worked out what type of licensing arrangemnt i'll have (maybe
a BSD approach) But I the END goal of the projets should be that people
people should always be able to get the code for free and then mod it,
tweak it sell it distribute it, whatever they want to it.

I desperatly need help not only with the actual development of the
projects but also the managerial aspect of the site itself. I need your
input.
I already have some datasheets setup for a few nvram devices..
some ideas for a few projects..

tcp/ip stack
I2C and SPI LCD control
I2C and SPI eeprom control
I2C and SPI SRAM (maybe 30 pin simms) control

basically a project would be a set of REUSABLE code and schematics that
can be used for application specific devices
like I'm currently working out the code to control a Crystal
Semiconductor CS8900a ethernet transceiver so I can connect PICs to the
Internet w/out a gateway PC. much like the http://www.embeddedethernet.com
site. only I will have a smaller dedicated PIC controlling the chip and
probably use Serial access (maybe SPI or I2C) that way I can devote the
majority of my codebase to sensor reading or other applications instead
of worring about using the 2K of codespace to control the cs8900a.

we have all seen the $50+ serial LCD's why not a project to develop one
using a small pic, a pcb, a generic HD47780 LCD?? and then give it away.
sound like fun??

come check it out and join the list.

I wish you luck, but ...

----

You may wish to subscribe to the gnupic mailing list (see http://www.gnupic.org/
) and post this announcement there. The gnupic site is devoted towards PIC
developement tools and so it doesn't really conflict with your openpic project.
However, the people subscribed there would more likely be inclined to subscribe
to your list.

Scott

PS. Sorry for the previous (crabby) post.

Source code for an LCD interface with arbitrary display is now available at
http://www.piclist.com

Click on FAQ, then Routines, then IO, then Andy Kunz.  Or something like that.

Anyway, it's there, happy hunting, and it's GPL so enjoy!

It will be on the Tech Tools site soon too.

Andy
