I don't even like to hear it...
I get my atmegas at 4Euro max...
I don't want them on the double....
For whom the interrupts toll...


P.S. I've been inactive for almost a year... Don't give promises but I'll try to complete my tutorials. I'll let you know when..

Cheers!

San Jose, CA, October 29, 2008…Atmel® Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), today announced that, after careful consideration, its Board of Directors has unanimously determined that the October 1, 2008, unsolicited proposal from Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP) and ON Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: ONNN) is inadequate in multiple respects, including value, conditionality and complexity, and is not in the best interests of Atmel's stockholders.
