Thread: Questions from a newbie in need.

       Hey all, I'm a 17 year old high school student, and have been doing
computer programming for a few years now.  I would say I'm an advanced c/c++
programmer, but haven't bit the bullet and learned ASM yet.  Anyhow, I'm
really interested in electronics, but know nothing about it.  I came up with
a really cool idea for a project for my car (I drive a 2001 VW GTI 1.8T that
i paid for with money i made making websites ;P), and I have a LOT of
questions. Where can i start learning about PICs?  I need a beginnners
tutorial from somewhere.. everywhere i look i just get ads for hardware and
stuff.  Basically, what i wanted to do for my car was create an dashboard
mounted LCD screen, with a few buttons on it that do different things, such
as showing how much boost the turbo is pushing, exhaust temperatures, etc..
i'd like to make a full color display, but i don't know if this/any of this
is possible.  Anyhow, this is just one idea I had, but please someone reply
with some info to get me going, possibly a good book to read on the subject,
please, anything!
