bearmos draws our attention to a quick deal! “If you’re interested in the PIC24F series (that DP uses quite readily) – MC is running a promotion where you can get a PIC24F microstick for $9.99 (excluding taxes and shipping) if you place an order today or tomorrow (6/29/12). It looks like a decent little board with a programmer/debugger built in – it also has some unpopulated headers that look like they’d be breadboard compatible. Here’s the normal product page. As well as the datasheet.”
