Micro Controller Techno Geek needed

Anyone here have decent experience programming and interfacing devices with Microcontrollers such as the "basic stamp"?

I've just got a little prototyping/programing board with a basicstamp...looking for someone with lots of experience playing with them. Seems fairly straightforward so far...just modified Basic Language. I'm going to eventually need help with the I/O. I'm looking to build a programable CDI ignition based on these chips or similar.
Besides not wanting to spend $1000+ on a store bought unit...most of them I've seen would not be suitable for my application anyway.

I want to intercept the trigger signal of the CDI unit that dumps the capacitor to the coil and delay it based on a rpm map.

i have no idea what your talking about. i can operate my mr. coffee machine. i'm an english mjor, not an engineer.

just thought i'd solicit my opinion on this thread.

carry on!


next time you need a bitchin' cup of coffee, call me, i'm a fuckin' wizard with my mr. coffee!

i'll tell you all about vonnegut instead! i find rand a little BORING! at least she isn't a hack like kerouac!

sorry i can't help you with that other stuff.


i love pissing off these hippies who think kerouac is some sort of prophet. he is a second rate author. pulp fiction at best.


p.s.- on all sixes, bitches!

i want you to retrofit my mr. coffee so it shuts off automatically! i can never remember to do that.

yeah, i got a vintage coffee machine too!
