    Yeah, where is the weekend project? I just got my kit, so I’m all set.

    So why does an “open source” project use a proprietary compiler? I agree that it still qualifies as open source, but …. for a project with highest hack value, it should have a gcc port for the processor. msp430 might have been a better choice than a pic.

    RussNelson – msp430s are really good, but they’re new – so people haven’t used them as much (i’m not sure if there is a DIP version?). they are becoming more popular – future versions of other stuff we do (or our kit makers do) might support it.

    as far as the complier there is a free complier (but i think it’s wonky, raphael, our kit maker can tell you more about this, just’em is the site). in general the PIC compiler situation is sorta weird.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your efforts and I am waiting for your further write
    ups thanks once again.
