Well I finaly got my pic programer and a few pics (12f629 and 16f88).

I have figured out bank switching, GPIO, TRISIO. I have made an led blink (using some one elses timing sub). Now what I wan't to learn is how to make my own timing sub. Preferably I would be able to input the time in half seconds so at one point I could call the timer for 2 half seconds to = 1 seconds and then latter use that timer sub to input 6 half seconds to = 3 seconds.

I think you get what I'm going for here. Maby this can't be done with pics?
