Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Hi, interesting site!

My main interest is microcontrolers, and I've done a lot of work on Arduinos and similar. But although I played with PIC chips a while back, and have a Pickit 3 and some 8-bit PICs, I only recently found out about the PIC32 and Geoff's brilliant work on the MicroMite, MaxiMite, etc.

I've built a couple of MaxiMites, first a UBW32 hack version, and now a proper kit. What a wonderful little computer - takes me back to many happy hours programming PET, Spectrum, Amiga, ...

I suppose this is (very) old news, but I found one bug in the MaxiMite V4.5C Attempting to print a really big float crashes the machine. Interestingly, there is no error generated when the too-large variable is created - only when it's printed.

A = 1E40:PRINT A

Now I'm off to surf the forum and learn something...
