HiTech C

FTDI with 16F690

Anyone using this approach (MPLAB with HiTech C and microchip pic 16F690) to control their robot?

I'm just now getting around to being able to have the PIC write to a PC and just recently having the PIC receive what the PC is sending at 9600 baud using FTDI basic breakout board.  Quite fast responce time compared to Parallax Basic stamp.  Lots cheaper too.
