hey... anyone know about conecting a basic stamp or similar devices to allow inputs to show their states on a website, and maby the ability to change states of outputs.. basic stamp and a server. ? i have various plans, like unsing for detecting doors open or closed, remotely interupting the power of a light or computer, checking if their is mail in the mailbox or not, ect, using switches, relays, photo sensors/diodes, and various other sensors. any ideas?

For this type of project I would go with a PIC
and not the expensive and slow stamp.

You should get into the PIC microcontroller
it is alot cheaper and faster and has more memory.

If you want any books I can give you some recommendations.

If you search the net, and in particular look on the PICList, there are a couple of projects about for running web servers on a PIC.

As already suggested, the STAMP is probably too limited.

It's not too limited for what it sounds like he wants, which is not to use the STAMP as a server, but simply to interface to a PC which is the server.

As long as you can write the software to interface to your web server, it would be pretty simple to setup a microcontroller with a serial interface just relaying sensor data.

He doesn't suggest that he's wanting to do that?, and if you're running a PC, why not just connect the sensors to the PC?.
