Since we are all introducing ourselves I would like to say hello. I
subscribed to the list last week, and although it went a bit quiet I am
interested in what is going back and forth now.
My name is Andrew Errington and I work as a PC consultant at Lancaster
University (UK). My interest in PICs came about after building a project
with a BASIC Stamp last year and deciding I could do more if I controlled
the processor directly. I bought Microchip's Embedded Control Handbook,
which is _full_ of cool ideas, and I built the 16C84 development programmer
detailed in there. I modified David Tait's controller software so I now
have a development environment that cost me about ?20 (or $30).
The PIC84 is excellent for development as it's EEPROM memory allows you to
recode and reprogram with no effort. I have a project underway (in my spare
time (ha ha!)), and I will probably be looking at the other PIC's with extra
features for later projects.
[This is my third attempt at getting something onto the list. I hope that
the other two are not marauding somewhere else...]

Hi my Name is James Kelly. I work in computer services for the University
of Kansas. I am an Old timmer with Robotics (since 81) and of all the
things I've seen come and go the PIC has contributed a good balance to
help bring the next generation of Robotics in to the 90's.
Hi to all you fine folks. Looking forward to Learning with you all.
