Hello,

For several months; I have read data sheets, micro controler concepts, purchased the Microchip Pic1 program and received several pics from Microchip. I have purchased Micro Electronics basic software Visual Basic for pics and have downloaded Microchips IDE software. Now I need help putting it all together. It's so much information overload that now I don't know where to start. All I want to do is monitor two switches and using a 5v regulator run a small dc motor. Can you help?
