It's time. Head on over to the Bot Thoughts facebook page and enter to win a miniProp, a Parallax Propeller on a DIP form factor with built in regulator, eeprom and crystal. Free IDE from Parallax, lots of community support, 8 cores (cogs), deterministic timing, easy to learn assembly, and more.
Next Tuesday I'll pick the winner at random out of the list of folks who comment on or like the contest post. Good luck!
