Humor?  Perhaps you are saying that you are omniscient?

I guess I am tiring a bit of the "my micro is better than your micro" 
part of the discussion.

I agree with Chuck that PIC's are fine, especially with the CCS C 
compiler, but what ever works for anyone is fine as long as it does the 
job and remains obtainable. I, also, can't see any reason why I would 
want to waste time by writing in assembly unless there was a good 
reason. The CCS C compiler, by the way, does support inline assembly 
code if you have a need.
