    I just received my Clone PICKit 2 programmer and it came with a tiny little demo board that uses the PIC12F629. I was hoping to connect up with others that are at least starting out with PICs, hopefully with C programming specifically and even better yet if they are using the 629.

    So far the biggest hurdle is getting used to how they setup everything to work. Setting up registers for I/O and all. Of course I understand it's necessary seeing they use few fins to do a lot of things.

    I did find an assembly program to at least test out the board.

    Anyway hoping others are in a similar boat.
