One other things thats been bugging me is the connection on the PickIT 2 how does everyone hook this thing to their circuit... are you just shoving wires straight into it. I see pictures of sockets that seem to be made for the PickIT 2. Anyone know what these are called so I can order some?
So you got yourself a breadboard? that will come in handy!
So for the pickit2 and how I connect it to the breadboard is by 5-6 pin header, these can come in rows of 40 pins and you just cut them down to size, Or yes you could just shove wires into the pickit2 to your breadboard?
heres a picture to show you what the pin headers look like
Ebay is a good souce for these
Maybe Brad can explain why we need the 10K resistor and the in-between state better?
