    Have you connected a 16x2 LCD display? That's a great project and useful for later projects. Also, if your device has a UART, I suggest using it to communicate to a computer. You'll probably need a USB to serial converter. I use an FTDI mini board for this. If you have an old computer with a serial port, you'll need a MAX232 chip/board to make the connection.
