************************************************** ***

Not sure if this value is important - not all parts of the chip were programmed.

Program memory appears to be 0x0 - 0x7FFF
Not sure what is at address 0x8005C2 but I'm hesitant to mess with the
PICkit 3 programming setup.

Serial cable 1 still gives me gibberish on the screen at 115K
and still echoes back everything at 9600 baud

Serial cable 2 does nothing. I suspect that I pulled out the pin for tx or rx
when I was soldering. I'll rebuild that with another 3 pin header

If that doesn't work - off to step 2. Install 8.83
