Just a PIC

Just recieved it today from my tutor (thank you, Dr. R). I'll get to play around with it for whatever time I choose to keep it. It's just a PIC microcontroller and a simple circuit board for it. For those who think I'm talking Chineese now, I'll quote a definition from the "Pic C" book, by Nigel Gardner:

Microcontroller = a lump of plastic, metal and purified sand which, without any software, does nothing. When software controlls the microcontroller, it has almost unlimited applications.

Let's see if it can tell me the temperature in my room Image
