So I want to get involved with AVRs and I was planning on getting the STK500 to get involved with them, but they are all out of stock.
Then I just decided to get a ISP programmer like the AVRISP, but everywhere I look, I can't find any of them in stock.
So my question is, is what is the easiest way to get involved with the AVRs, programming them and also developing different hardware ideas/devices/etc? Also, I would like to either keep this kinda of cheap or if it is a little bit more expensive to be able to use when I am more advanced with the AVRs. (I am so annoyed right now, bc the STK500 fits my needs perfectly, but I want to start learning this stuff over the summer while I have more time...)
