I wonder if the source code for that microprocessor is available online. If so all you would need is a pic flasher. If it is not, I may be able to assist.

I will give you my 0.2 cents on the whole thing: "Ruby on Rails" is simply a buzz word, just like AJAX. RoR is a framework of already proven technologies. These technologies are, Ruby, A Web Server, A relational database, and something that will give Ruby persistent database conenction (like FastCGI...

I have never heard of any cover band filling out any forms and paying royalties for songs they played at any gigs. May be a reality in England but not here (at least it is not honored here). As a side note, copyright laws can be a tricky thing to enforce, which is why most organizations (RIAA, MPAA)...
