I lucked out on my first try: NOPPP (No Parts Pic Programmer) by Michael
Covington (?) It worked as soon as the soldering iron came off it
(almost) and is still working. He supplies software too but at the time
he wrote it the 16F84 was all the rage ... 16F628 wasn't out yet ... and
so the DL proggie doesn't support the 16F628 (which you should buy
instead of 16F84 or 16F84A). NO PROGLEM, though. Somebody else out
there (can't think of his name or the name of his programmer) has his
own version of a minimal programmer and his software can be used on the
NOPPP just fine.
Google on NOPPP.
