Happy virus to this list. This is an ongoing problem and it is really
getting nauseating. People have complained to  ip.co.za several times. If
they can't get their adolescent users under control, I move to disconnect
the sisuserspamKILLspamip.co.za relay altogether.

If you re-read the header, you will find that the user is a PICLIST
member also, and the message was sent to the piclist by him. So it's our
problem also. Calling him names won't help, and there is no relay in
place, it is simply a dual addressed message by a person who is a member
of both lists. You will find hundreds of users in this position. I am
sending a copy of this to the sisuser list also.

You will find the ip.co.za domain is run by a prominent South African
Piclister (well I think he is busy these days, we don't hear much) that
runs these lists at his own expense. He also started and runs the atmel
list, bascom list for atmels, and many lists for private individuals.

He started the atmel list to keep the signal to noise ratio down on this
list, as there was no venue for the atmel avr guys in place, so you will
find piclisters on many "ip.co.za" lists, I will guarantee it.

Has anyone gone to the trouble to inform Sintax that he has the virus in
his email program, so as to assist him in removing it?

He has asked a legitimate pic question, and will be unaware of the virus
problem.
How many others have we seen do just his on this list?

Or, rather than being angry, you could just be proactive and get back to our
collective roots - set up your email on a UNIX system (or variant) - tends
to eliminate 99% of the virus crap.

No, I disagree - receiving the occasional copy of Happy is good practice for
everyone.
Seriously.
Happy is ALMOST benign (no trojan is totally so) in that its one task in
life is to propagate itself.

You only catch it by running a forwarded attachment.
This is a VERY stupid thing to do.
There are much much worse things that you can contract by doing this.
If everyone who sends happy is roundly abused (in the most gentle loving way
possible of course) then they MAY get the idea before something really nasty
comes along.
Similarly, EVERYONE who receives Happy should just delete it and in the
process add unconsciously to the mental note that bad things can happen top
people who run unverified attachments.

Think of it as an excellent training and inoculation exercise.

Hi,
where can I found the ATMEL list?
I ask bcus in the last time the local provider has serious problems to
provide the appropriate amount & quality of PICs. He told me the problem
is a minimal ordering amount (I recall 1000 by individual sorts). So I'm
afraid it starts a down-running spirale; the more disappointed customers,
the less orders, which increases number of disappointed customers etc.

Another provider now sells AT89C2051, for $2.75. Can be compared with
16F84 (but no EEPROM), or with 16C622. However, it has:

- 2k Flash
- a built-in USART
- one built-in comparator
- 128 byte RAM area
- 15 I/O pins
- 2 external IT

I guess it is time for me to think about its usage in SOME starting
project.

----[discussion material follows]----

I think a smallish problem is caused by an otherwise good thing: the great
variety of PICs. It may be a fine but if you think e. g. the
following: there are 16C620, 621, 622, both for 4 and 20 MHz and in a wide
variety of housing, would not be an advantage to keep only one, say
16C622? The economy of scale would decrease the price so that single one
would cost as many as the 620 nowadays? (I forget the temperature variety,
which also doubles the count of sorts...)

On the other hand, as Mchip has announced the new flash types, it lead to
extremely high expectations, especially because of competing producers has
similar products (Hitachi, Atmel, etc). This lead also to a decreased
demand for another PICs. On the other hand, MChip announced also the 18Cxx
line. Such way the firm landed in a bottleneck.

I do not know whether Mchip is strong enough to cope with this bundle of
home-made problems, but I wish him (in the interest all of us) good luck.
I would suggest to clean up the production line and decrease the variety.

Not to forget that Mchip offers his production line alone (in my opinion
SX is not a true alternative due to the limited stack depth), contrary to
the '51 line, where one has a choice to select among different producers
(Intel, Dallas, Philips, Atmel, Siemens and many others).

Here is my $0.02.

Looks like this:

- Send message to EraseMEatmel-requestspamspamspamBeGonepic.co.za with the word
- JOIN
- in the message body

Use LEAVE instead of JOIN to remove yourself from the list. Send all
commands to the list server from the same Email account.

However I attempted to join a few days ago without success. Didn't get a
message returned, so I don't know if there is a problem or not. Just
tried again now, in fact this message was a reminder.

'[OT] Atmel lists [was re: ~!@#$% Happy ... ]'

There are two other AVR-related lists that I know of.

The AVR egroups list can be found at

 http://www.egroups.com/list/avr/

You don't have to read it on the website, you can
configure it to come to your inbox.

Also, for discussions of the AVR port of GCC and
the GNU Atmel assembler AVA, there's the avr gcc
list; info can be found at:

 http://medo.fov.uni-mb.si/mapp/maillist.html

Both lists are lightly active, perhaps two to ten
messages in a day; responsiveness and S/N are
quite high.

AVA and the GCC port to AVR are both awesome, BTW.
I've been tinkering with GCC on an AT90S8535, and
it works very well.

I totally agree with Russell, reader (and buyer) beware. Education and
experience are the only real defense against virus propagation.

How do you figure the SX (I assume you mean the Scenix SX) has a more
limited stack depth than the PIC?
All the Sx's have a stack depth of 8 and I don't remember seeing any PIC's
with a deeper stack. Please tell me where I am going wrong on this.

Hi,

you are right, my mistake (I have intermixed somehow with 16C5x series).
It is pricy, however, at least at us.
