Hi!

I was wondering if anyone did burn a PIC obtaining
voltage from the phone line. That cable hooked up to
the modem could be useful even when you're not using
the modem.

Thanks!

P.D: Just pray that the phone doesn't ring while you're
burning...!

Your phone company might decide to freak out about this.  I believe
the US has FCC regulations limiting the amount of power a device can
steal from the phone lines, and if you load a phone line too much it
will not sound so good.    I think if the phone company finds out
about this they will holler and squawk.

This is a common fallacy.
Prayers also have to be applied properly :-)

I believe the trick is to prey after the desired result is guaranteed,

However some may argue use of goat entrails or lolly water etc.
