Please don't mock me for using Basic Stamp. I'm just a hobbyist and Visual Basic was the language I learned many years ago. Anyhow...I've been tinkering with my BS kit and wrote some cool simple applications for various projects I've been working on. Unfortunately, the BS modules are neither cost effective or small enough to actually use. All I need is a simple PIC12F/C for most of the things I'm doing.
So my question is, aside from probably having to learn the PIC command set, what do I physically need to start burning my own PICs?
