    Hi from Belgium

    I never had training in electronics or programming, but I love LEDs. I wanted to do more with those shiny things than a standard controller could offer, so I ended up with an Arduino. Wow, a new world opened up After trying several example projects I finally started to program things myself. Then I realised, hmm, an Arduino is rather big and expensive to use in permanent projects. So I searched for other solutions and discovered PICs. Again, wow. Incredible what such a small thing can do. I started making projects, soldering away and steadily expanding my electronic components collection. On a blog I saw an article about the TI launchpad. Hmm, an Arduino lookalike that has a real programming interface and can program TI processors and that for a little more than $4 ? Sign me up. I've discovered that the launchpad is a great tool to work with. I even ordered the touch extension, a second launchpad and the chronos watch. I love the TI programming interface (yes, even with the imposed limitation) and am looking forward to learn more about TI components. I ordered some sample from TI and was surprised that the delivery guy arrived only 2 days later. Currently I'm making a webcontroller for the lights at home. I have it working on an Arduino, but want to use or a PIC or something from TI. So expect some questions about ethernet controllers and the launchpad from
