It's spelled g-o-o-g-l-e-.-c-o-m and it takes just a few seconds getting the first hit...

Hi,

If  they took your money (check this), they should cough up the goods.

Perhaps the following Whois excerpt may be helpful in getting their attention...

Thanks soeren but I have already tryed that and the emails and phone number are no longer in service. So i moved on and looking to see if anyone on here has a mark 3 or something very close that uses the 16f877 chip.

Hi,

[...] the emails and phone number are no longer in service.

They have to be, so you can always bash them through the whois, as they loose the right to their domain, if they're not reachable through their contact details for two weeks or so IIRC .

In any case, I just send them an email on their regular addy - I'll tell you if I get any response.


So i moved on and looking to see if anyone on here has a mark 3 or something very close that uses the 16f877 chip.

Why does it have to be a 16F877 (It's a dinosaur)?

Take a look at some kick-ass 32bit (Arduino compatible) PIC boards http://www.digilentinc.com/Products/Catalog.cfm?NavPath=2,892&Cat=18
It's lightyears ahead of anything carrying a 16F877 and the smallest one, the Uno32 is even cheaper than the MarkIII (and running circles around it).

Thanks soeren I have arduino on my robot also but need the mark 3 as it runs off my laptop to control movement and arm  control. Don't want to be making new code as i have to much time into it. I wonder if there so other Dec boards that take the 16f877 chip that I can use? Hmm
