Their system is easy to use to signup a group of people who want to get alerts by sms text message. Their pricing was very reasonable for providing group text messaging support.

Gencon Indy 2010 was very very cool. The dealer room had enough in it to occupy a full days worth of browsing. Played some Dominion, Ticket to Ride and pathfinder while there and will be getting a 4 day pass for next year instead of the Saturday only pass like I did this year.

Got to listen to a couple of book readings by authors and I'm going to have to read more by "Karl Schroeder" and his VIRGA stories.
Also will have to pick up Dominion the card game. That is an addictive game!

This came from an Instructables link for LED Fireflies Prototype. They are the natural extension of the "LED throwies" which are always on and are cool.
So starting out I've been digging for where to start and though I should keep track of the thing's I've found so far on here.
Found a cool development kit for only $36 which should provide a decent starting point for playing around with PIC Micros.
microchip.com the PIC12F683 or it's little brother PIC12F675
After a bit of digging I'll be ordering the PICkit 1 starter kit for $36 probably along with a couple of additional PIC12F683/PIC12F675 chips.
Next part of this experiment is to figure out how you can use an LED as both input and output. A quick Google search provided parts of the answer but to figure out how I'm going to do this will probably require some tinkering.
