NO RATINGS
Thanks for keeping the session open.  Another day when conflicts kept me from being here on time.

This has been a great series this week!  Well worth the time as Jon has provided real user evaluations.

Regarding hardware tools, buying from anybody except the manufacturer or an authorized distributor is either suicide or simply a repressed desire to work 7 days a week.  These are cheap compared to our engineering overhead rate.

Also, there is a lot of variation between the vendors into how durable programming tools and development kits are.  Specifically, the Microchip PICkits have survived numerous wiring errors on my part.  Microchip has the most durable and easiest to use that I have found.

Regarding slides 13 & 14, I need to know what the gates are really doing.  This is essential when the wizard does not work as advertised.  I have seen similar problems with library functions that do not work correctly.
