    • @Ron P cool! i think i have to remove the dust from those PIC 18 from my top shelve and start coding some C...

    • Thanks Giorgos, Yes it is a fantastic chip.

      The two last pictures posted are from Glenn Littleford and posted with his permission. I think this really demonstrates the potential of the Maximite and mmbasic code!

      Basic is supposedly low level programming, I believe, so this is an entry level project for people like me with little or no coding ability.

      Do you think that i could have used the Maximite for my coffee maker instead? And only use expansion cards for the I/O? I had some problems controlling the LCD that i will use (http://www.pcbheaven.com/exppages/Reverse-Engineering_an_LCD_Display).

      I always feel a little uncomfortable programming in higher level languages (such as basic for example), and this is why i have an arduino deep in the top shelve for about 2 years now. I must get over with this "defect" i think... and start programming in C and Basic. Wonderful things are out there to work with.

      Nice to see your post today Ron.
