For the PIC programming Topic

I can step through the Code for the new LED Strobe firmware and what settings can be changed to modify it's blink behavior.

I think this will be of interest and will give people an insight and look at a simple but useful PIC, the 10F200

Cheers
Phil

I would like to thank Matt for organising the Sydney mini, it was a great day for all and I sure walked out a wiser man from the experience. I would like to also thank Lytnin for organising such a great venue for the event plenty of space and it was the perfect place for the mini. His wife should also be thanked for making such a great lunch that we all enjoyed.

At first I wasn't sure if i was at the right place with all those vintage motorbikes that were there but it was just a rally that was organising to leave for the day, so we got to see some great old vintage motorbikes before we got stuck into it for the day. I think we all walked out today learning something new and to see the ECG in action was truly impressive.

Phil showed his strobe and pictures don't do justice to the size of the little things, I look forward to the challenge of putting them together.
The AVR and PIC programming was great and I now cant wait to get may hands on a PICIT3 as I feel a bit more confident after the demo. Show and tell was also great with all of us showing eachother something we had brought in and there was some great stuff that was displayed.

Well i hope that we can do this again next year as it truly was a fantastic venue and it was great to meet a few of the guys around the region.

So The Sydney Mini is done.
Yep the Venue was excellent - and as Fast Eddy said whilst it was some what confusing to arrive to a car park full of collector's bike, I am sure I wasn't the only one who sort wished I could join the ride.







Dave, you're a champ for arranging the venue.




Phil, my thanks to you for the LSP and Vixen demo.

Jpb, Daviddth, Lytnin, Wombat, Fasteddy & AussiePhil thanx for making the mini what it was, simply superb.

All that attended concluded to make this a common event at the same venue. The preferred timing is April/May so stay posted for the next one.
