    Your Basic Stamp bench setup should include grounding write strap. Stamps are super sensitive to transients, and at the price point, that static gets expensive. I guess that’s the price you pay for being too lazy to program a pic.

    It also shouldn’t include BASIC because that’s an ancient and retarded language. I bet you won’t follow my advice, though, because you only speak Latin.
