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.

"so will work with a TV or any small screen of your choice"
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.
HOT in heaven!
