NO RATINGS
Max - I was brining up a small board based on a varient if PIC16F MCU that I hadn't used before. It's real close to a bunch of others that I've used, but it still took me more than an hour to get the right combination of settings between the conficuration bits, clock settings and - yes, even basic port configuration - before I got the chip to do anything. It's nuts. The Arduino take care of all of that for you.
