Using LAMP

LAMP is the name given to a program stack that is commonly used for developing dynamic web-pages. These applications being the GNU/Linux operating System, Apache webserver, MySQL database and either PHP, Perl or Python. So what are dynamic web-pages and how do they differ from any other webpage? Web pages can be thought of as either being static or dynamic. Static web-pages are those where the completed document is stored in a file and is merely presented to the client by the webserver.

A JDM Programmer Variant

I have found the the low-cost programmer provided in schematic by Jaakko Hyvätti (which is based on the jdm84v23 by Jens Madsen), though slow, to be acceptable for my needs. I currently have the device working with Picprog on a breadboard, however I would like a much more solid version ;-) I have decided, rather than placing a chip holder on the board, to provide a header with the required control lines.

Programming PIC Microcontrollers Under Linux

Programming microcontrollers under Linux can be some what of a complicated task. The manufacturers of microcontrollers generally sell tools and provide software to program their devices, but these tools are produced only for one operating system. This operating system is not Linux… To add to the problem further many of the tools that they sell, whilst being reasonably feature rich (allowing for in-circuit debugging and alike), they are also quite pricey.
