Ello! I have been into electronics for about 2 years. I have several breadboards and a plethora of led's and 7seg displays and all of those goodies. Now I am looking to get a AVR programmer and appropriate tools. I was looking around the net for a usb programmer. I was thinking of getting ladyada's usb programmer kit
But obliviously I also kinda need a few AVR's. What ones would you recommend? I guess I would be looking for a wide variety of Sizes(all through hole though) like 8pin DIP and to like an ATMEGA168 or bigger.
Any other equipment that would be necessary please share. Also I am running Windows Vista 64bit on my computer and I am having some difficulty's with AVR studio(I created a topic in the avr studio section)
