Check out the PIC Internet Appliance article in the latest June issue
of Poptronics mag. In involves both PIC 16C877 or 12C671, and the
firmware is emWare. The article says s.w. is free-free-free. I ordered
the kit [$80] and received it on Saturday - a bag of parts with **1**
page of documentation, saying only goto the site and download the s.w.
Looks like an easy/cheap way to enter the embedded internet game.
