I may have missed this but where can we get the file to program the PIC. I will be using a PickIt2 for programming.

Thanks

As of yet the file have not been released.

There is still a little live testing to happen, but the required file will be available as the strobe board is sent out.

Works for me. I thought I was missing a post or something. Thanks for clearing that up.

The 5 holes on one edge are the ICSP (In Circuit Serial Programming) connections.

You'll make up the boards, then program them one at a time using a PicKit 2 (or compatible) programmer.

The programmer has a set of pins that match the board. Simply hold the two parts together, press program and it's done in a few seconds.

From the pictures, it seems like you'll just need to make up a short ICSP cable with 5 pin male - female headers. The pinout on the programmer appears to be the same as the strobe PCB, apart from you not using the 6th pin (marked LOW).
