Hacking: BASIC Stemp & The 7-Segment Display

BASIC Stamp & the 7-Segment Display

I've always been interested in getting to hack micro-controllers -- the tiny computers that sit above raw hardware, but to below a full blown processor and operating system. They seem like an excellent way to fully understand computers and their capabilities.

The problem with micro-controllers is that I've yet to find a good introduction to them. Either the information is way out of my league, or is way too basic. The blog entry above seems like it might be a resource that's useful: basic, yet useful enough to get one to the next level. At the very least, it can go into the pile of basic experiments to try.
