I've used the PICStart 16B since version 1.4 (keep getting upgrades, like
candy), and it's always been flakey. I have one at work and another at
home. Both the same.
I've never even tried shifting the part in the ZIF socket. Sometimes it
programs first time, usually it takes three attempts. Without shifting the
chip at all. I chalk it up to flakey timing and bad exception handling.
Which is also pure conjecture... My $0.02
I'm interested in that "Unix" code the other guy has.
